Based on marketing and feasibility data collected in a recent study, SILS is uniquely positioned to play an international leadership role in conducting research and providing training for health information professionals. At the same time, issues related to informed health decision making by consumers, especially the use of health information from the Internet, are of primary concern. 108

Faculty Development 108

Programs 108

It is a priority within North Carolina to improve support for our elementary and secondary schools and provide high quality educational opportunities for our children. SILS could contribute directly to this effort through its research and teaching in the area of information literacy for children, children’s library services and the use of technology by children. 108

Information Resources 109

UNC has strengths in the humanities and the institutions that preserve our cultural heritage such as museums, archives and special collections in libraries. By consolidating and leveraging its resources, SILS can provide a broad range of educational and research opportunities for the training of professionals working in cultural heritage institutions. 109
