Synopsis

In today's healthcare environment, lay people are increasingly anxious to play a more involved role in decisions that affect their well being. They actively seek medical and health information in libraries, bookstores, and on the Internet. Such high demand has left many public librarians struggling to meet their clients' needs, even as large numbers of new publications are becoming available. This book addresses the issues involved in developing a CHI collection in public libraries, with particular attention to the needs and behaviors of its target clientele.
