Hello everyone and just want to let you know about a couple of free CE
opportunities we have here at the National Network of Libraries of Medicine
Pacific Northwest Region.


Do you work with patrons or personnel who are in the public health field?
Do you wonder how to obtain relevant public health data?  Are you employed
at a rural public library and want to better serve your patrons?  Your
National Network of Libraries of Medicine Pacific Northwest Region (NN/LM
PNR) is offering two free classes in the coming weeks.  Both of these
classes contain information for any library professional whether you work in
an academic, health sciences, public library or simply have an interest.
They both are eligible for Medical Library Association CE credits and will
add value to your work and provide information your patrons will find
useful. Go ahead and register now!

Health Information on the Web" will be offered for 4 CE credits from the

"Health on the Range: Rural Health Issues and Resources" is worth 2 CE
credits from the Medical Library Association.  This is a class that shows
resources of interest to libraries who serve in small towns and rural areas.
