The National Network of Libraries of Medicine, New England Region, at the University of Massachusetts Medical School Library, is taking part in ongoing research on public health practitioners’ access and use of information resources with an emphasis on evidence-based public health. Ms. Simpson will report on the Public Health Information Access Project and also provide examples of library outreach projects relating to public health in the New England Region (Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont) and how collaborations between libraries and their public health communities, including the research community, can help expand the work and reach of public health departments.
