INSPIRE Portals Provide ACA Resources for Patrons, Librarians
The patron portal provides links to videos, fact sheets and where to find help locally. The librarian portal provides a list of resources, promotional materials, training opportunities, and INSPIRE health databases.
Indiana libraries have been on the front lines of providing support for eGovernment programs as they have increased exponentially in availability over the past decade. Whether its filing for unemployment or registering for a fishing license, Indiana librarians support their respective community’s needs to both understand (digital literacy) and access eGovernment services. In many Indiana communities, the public library is the only place that residents can turn if they cannot afford a computer or internet access.
Most Indiana libraries are already offering special programs and services for the public. A great example is the Indianapolis Public Library, which has created an informative ACA resources and information webpage.
More Library Resources Available on WebJunction Indiana
The Indiana State Library is a WebJunction partner so all library professionals in the state have access to the webinars WebJunction has facilitated on ACA. The eHealth page on WebJunction has several archived ACA webinars which are free and very helpful resources to start getting prepared for assisting patrons with the health insurance marketplace.
