New Resources: LibGuides Links
I've added some links to new resources I've been creating. They're called LibGuides, and they're designed to organize and display related patient-friendly resources on a variety of cancer topics. While they were originally intended to replace the Information Guides, they are going to be used to enhance the Information Guides as an additional online resource rather than act as a replacement. The Information Guides are on track to be updated over the summer, so please look for the new guides. I'll post to the blog as the new Information Guides are approved and released.
In the meantime, the LibGuides created so far are excellent resources for reference staff to use when answering questions from patients and families. The links are more direct, they contain more information, audio/visual content and practical assistance resources.
Please look over the LibGuides I've posted so far. One caveat: while all links are to respected and authoratative materials, the LibGuides have not undergone the clinical approval process, and as such should not be handed out to patients yet. These are for our internal use. The LibGuides initiative will continue through this year and next, and hopefully serve as a robust resource for patients and families and staff.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Again, I encourage you to click on the links and familiarize yourself with the resources to best serve our patrons!
