Introduction: Our organization provides library services to over 100,000 staff in Canada's largest province-wide healthcare delivery system. The delivery of accessible, equitable, and sustainable library services to this diverse and geographically dispersed staff presents both challenges and opportunities, particularly with regard to skill development. Our multimodal, virtual curriculum targets learners' information literacy learning needs in this unique provincial context. Description: The curriculum includes three components: 1) Evidence at Your Fingertips (EAYF), a program of eight synchronous online courses open to all staff; 2) a series of microlearning video tutorials; and 3) a collection of online how-to guides. The focus of our paper is the EAYF program, which has seen approximately 1500 participants register for 200+ sessions since October 2015. In the past year, we have developed standardized processes for course development, marketing, registration management, session delivery, and evaluation. Outcomes: Three methods are used to assess program outcomes: standardized post-session evaluation of learner satisfaction with key program aspects and confidence performing identified tasks; and, after action reviews and whole team retrospective reviews to identify and share lessons learned and opportunities for quality improvement. Discussion: The evolution of the EAYF program has prompted us to think innovatively about how to design, develop, promote, deliver, and evaluate virtual education programming. Successes include positive feedback on the short, focused nature of the sessions and the ease with which they can be accessed.
