Presentation
Medical Home Work: Providing Social Media for Community Partners
Dartmouth College Library October Conference (2015)

Abstract
In 2011, the Health Sciences Library at Baystate Health began participating in the monthly meetings of the Medical Home Work Group for families with special needs children in Western MA. The Community Outreach Librarian sat at the table for a few months before offering to do social media outreach for this group. This lightning presentation describes the evolution from tentative first steps to the routine use of Wordpress, Facebook and Twitter. This is an imperfect journey, with lots of stops and starts, which lead to a feeling of goodwill toward the Health Sciences Library as well as the sharing of relevant services and resources.
