Innovative health sciences curricula are being applied in undergraduate and continuing education and of ten incorporate new technologies. The health sciences librarians' educational responsibilities include teaching access to the literature and other information resources, teaching use of technology as a means to access and manage information, and teaching skills in information organization and critical appraisal.
