A live training Webinar, "Federal Depository Libraries and the Affordable Care Act," will be offered Monday, September 23 at 2 p.m. Eastern time.
Federal Depository Libraries and the Affordable Care Act
- Start Time: 2 p.m. Eastern Time
- Duration: 60 minutes
- Summary: As Americans look ahead to the October 1 open enrollment date for the health insurance marketplace, there is an abundance of information about the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and many opportunities for libraries. IMLS is working with the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services and with WebJunction and ZeroDivide to provide library staff with the online resources and community contacts they will need to respond to questions about the Marketplace. One of the key roles that federal depository libraries can play is to maintain an awareness of available resources in your area, and develop an approach for connecting patrons to those resources in the way that makes the most sense for your community.
Please join us for this interactive session, where we will discuss strategies for libraries to identify ACA resources, hear from an FDL member library that is working to prepare for patron requests, and obtain key policy and resource updates from ACA experts.
