Health in All Policies (HiAP) and Public Librarianship
Keywords:public health, library policy, COVID-19, inter-organizational cooperation, health promotion
This paper introduces the Health in All Policies (HiAP) approach to developing a multi-sector community health infrastructure, that could include public libraries and public librarians. This approach could be a positive alternative to the sometimes negative experience of public librarians being asked, or ordered, to fulfill public health duties during the COVID-19 Pandemic. After introducing the concept, the paper discusses some of the ways it could be incorporated into LIS education, particularly for public librarians.
