Dear Colleagues,I’m writing to announce the recent publication of my
book, Answering Consumer Health Questions: the Medical Library
Association Guide for Reference Librarians published by Neal-Schuman.
The book explores the reference transaction from a behavioral point of
view and offers appropriate responses to the many types of circumstances
that librarians must deal with each day when providing health reference
service. The seven chapters cover:Professional Practice: Understanding
and Reaching Out to Consumer Health Information SeekersProfessional
Interactions: Communication Guidelines and StrategiesProfessional Ethics
of Providing Health InformationLegal Issues in Health Information
DeliveryServing the Health Information Needs of Diverse IndividualsThe
Difficult PatronSelf-care for the Health Information Provider My
background as MLA instructor for two consumer health CE courses, my
experience as director of a university medical school library, and my
16+ years as a consumer health librarian for Mid-Columbia Medical
Center, a rural hospital in north central Oregon , have given me a
unique perspective from which to write this book. For more information
