The EBL was awarded an Institute of Museum and Library Services National Leadership Planning Grant in October 2008 to develop strategies for assessing children’s interactions with health information. The team of librarians, psychologists, child development experts, pediatricians, informaticians, evaluators, and educators employed a six-month planning period to develop techniques to assess health information needs and perceptions in children. These resources represent key materials used throughout the grant period.
