Biblio-Santé Bereavement

Monday, June 13, 2022

Biblio-Santé is a program of the Quebec Public Library Association. The ABPQ is made up of more than 179 member municipalities and corporations, for a total of over 317 autonomous libraries. Biblio-Aidants is available in more than 780 participating public libraries as well as associated health libraries throughout Quebec. Each document for inclusion in the Biblio-Santé thematic booklets is evaluated with impartiality, based on Librarianship practices in place in public libraries, using various general selection criteria. Regarding documentaries, works by health professionals (doctors, nurses, occupational therapists, psychologists, etc.) are given preference. However, titles based on lay or experiential knowledge are not rejected outright, especially those involving support by a caregiver.
