As a former medical librarian, public librarian, and public library system consultant, the provision of medical information to users is often on my mind. The post Just What the Doctor Ordered: Medical Libraries and Public Libraries Reinforcing Community Health describes an excellent example of a medical library partnering with public libraries to provide much-needed information.
If you are in a public library, seek out opportunities to partner with medical libraries. If you are in a medical library, please let public libraries know what you have to offer, and how you can work together. It is all part of our mission to educate the public.
