Abstract

While getting a Web portal off the ground for the School of Medicine's new International Medical Institute (IMI), featuring freely available Spanish language materials, the authors became acutely aware that there was a dearth of information on such materials directed at the patient/ consumer. In the interest of providing a more balanced picture and more resources, two native Spanish-speaking librarians embarked on a quest to locate high quality relevant resources that could be used by Spanish-speaking patients and their families to serve their health care information needs.
