The belief that "children are not just small adults" is integral to the care provided at Upstate Medical University’s Golisano Children’s Hospital and it is now being reflected in our Health Sciences Library collection development policy for our Family Resource Center. Beginning in 2013 in partnership with Pediatric Administration, the HSL started to think outside the box of its traditional consumer health collection development policies and started looking for familiar literary characters to explain health and hospital related topics. This poster will describe the movement we are making to expand our collection development policies; the types of new genres we are adding to our consumer health collection; and the effects these items are having on circulation statistics. Learn about this small, dynamic collection and how we are blending our adult and pediatric consumer health collections to best meet the needs of our pediatric patients and their families.
