Libraries that meet this criteria provide a collection of web resources that have been evaluated and kept current by the librarians based on knowledge or analysis of the health concerns of community members. Links should be assembled together with explanatory text; links spread out throughout the site, or links to other websites that have collected links are not sufficient to meet this criteria. Libraries that meet this criteria have developed a collection of reliable online medical and health-related resources that have been evaluated and kept current by librarians based on the needs and interests of community members. Resources should be thoughtfully curated and webpages offering these links should offer descriptive text to help patrons choose resources appropriate for their needs. Links to health-related resources that are spread out throughout the site, are not maintained or described, or are simply links to other websites that have collected links do not demostrate sufficient collection development practice to meet this criteria.
