New Signage for The Hub

 

New signage has gone up in The Hub, directing students to the 3D printer, Multimedia Station, and The Hub itself. Along with this signage, whiteboards and display shelves have been installed on the walls. Keep an eye out for 3D prints and other displays on the new shelves!

All resources in The Hub are available for immediate use, including the 3D printer, BodyViz, an Oculus Rift Virtual Reality headset, a large monitor that can be hooked up to a personal laptop for projects or presentations, and a Mac computer in the Multimedia Station complete with Adobe Creative Cloud, Microsoft Office, and other editing and design programs.

Come check out our new signage and explore The Hub’s resources at the Briscoe Library.

NIHSeniorHealth.gov to be Retired on August 1

 

 

Through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Library of Medicine (NLM), a number of online health information sites are freely available and seek to improve health literacy by providing reliable, up-to-date health information. Studies have shown that an individual’s health literacy level is a key indicator of an individual’s level of health. To address the health of seniors, NIHSeniorHealth.gov was introduced in 2003 and was the only one of its kind. The original developers of the site recognized that older adults often faced a number of challenges with utilizing online information due to underlying cognitive and visual needs.   For this reason, innovative options such as text resizing, color contrast, text-to-voice, “chunked” content, and the use of plain language were incorporated with content targeted specifically toward individuals 60 years and older.

In the current online environment, the same innovative practices have become more commonplace and there has been an explosion of other resources that can be accessed by people of all ages.  Due to this, the decision has been made to retire the NIHSeniorHealth website, however, much of the valuable and updated content will be available through other NIH and NLM sites. As of August 1, 2017, users will be redirected to the Health and Aging section of NIA website.  Other sites that continue to provide evidence-based health information for seniors include the NIHSeniorHealth YouTube Channel, NIA Go4Life, and the premier NLM consumer health site MedlinePlus.

Outreach Provided at Back to School Event Benefiting Over 450 Relative Caregivers and Children

 

Karen Barton, Liaison and Community Engagement Librarian, had a table at the Alamo Area Agency on Aging (AACOG) Back to School Voucher Event for kinship care families, specifically older relative caregivers (grandparents, great aunts and uncles and others) and the children under their care. The UT Health San Antonio Libraries was one of many partners given the opportunity to provide caregivers with information on their programs and services at the event, where 123 caregivers received free backpacks, goodies and vouchers for school supplies for 333 children. Approximately 150 of the 333 children were present at the event. Calendars made by the Libraries that promote health literacy and many other resources for children and adults were given away at the event.
