The Vermont Department of Libraries VTLIB seeks funding to make local, state, and federal government healthcare information accessible to all Vermonters. This project aligns with the departments LSTA goals, strategic plan, and Vermont gubernatorial goals of improving the quality of life for Vermonts most vulnerable populations. The department has focused on three public health areas demonstrating a need for strengthened support: 1 gerontology; 2 95 mental health; and 3 cannabis literacy. Project implementation would provide health resources in a variety of formats from the NLM and related training for 20 Vermont librarians. Using a train-the-trainer model, these 20 librarians would then share expertise with their colleagues around the state. Focused consideration is given to how these public health areas present in 95 populations.
