This work reviews the ways in which the public library can fulfill its role in consumer health information delivery. It will cover assessing community health needs; conducting a health information reference interview; developing and managing a health collection; providing health education programming, developing partnerships with other health information providers; possible funding for a health information service; and using the Internet and online resources for this mission.
