LifeLearn ClientEd service

Lifelearn in Canada has changed how it delivers client education.  As veterinary librarian have bought their Cds and DVDs and books in the past for the library collection, so I am familiar with the company.  I have no relationship with the company other than trying to purchase the client education service for the library.

Lifelearn has a new service that provides authoritative affordable client education materials: http:http://www.lib.utk.edu/agvet/lifelearn/

Here is what it looks like in a veterinary practice Web site in Cookeville, TN:  http://www.vcahospitals.com/ragland-and-riley/pet-health-information

 

Full Disclosure::  LifeLearn staff have used research results from surveys that I helped conduct of veterinarians and owners in promoting the ClientEd service.  I have no formal relationship with Liflearn. I have begun a subscription to ClientEd with library funds to support the College of Veterinary Medicine.
