Infopeople is working with NN/LM Pacific Southwest Region to collect and share information related to the Affordable Care Act. Thanks to the efforts of NN/LM PSR Consumer Health & Technology Coordinator Kelli Ham, a LibGuide with information resources for the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is now available from the “Quick Links” menu of the NN/LM PSR home page. Check it out by visiting http://guides.nnlm.gov/psr/aca! It will be updated as additional information becomes available.
An IMLS cooperative agreement with OCLC’s WebJunction will result in online educational webinars, tip sheets and other resources to help library staff members respond to increased patron information needs related to the Health Insurance Marketplace. These resources include:
- Sign-up opportunity for anyone interested in receiving project activity updates, new online resources, webinar registrations and archived webinar recordings from WebJunction;
- FAQs for library staff with more information about WebJunction resources and the Health Insurance Marketplace;
- The link to the primary U.S. government online tool for delivering information to Americans about their healthcare options;
- Info widgets for library websites, which will lead users directly to U.S. government info, available in English and in Spanish.
