Health Sciences Library[email protected]
As the Director of the Health Sciences Libraries, I guide and implement a programmatic approach to HSL initiatives and services, ensuring that resources and funding strategies align with strategic priorities, that program development is guided by continuous process improvement, and that users have a consistent experience across the HSL’s full range of services.
In keeping with the scholarship of Estelle Broadman, I believe that Health Sciences Libraries are mirrors of their communities, and that working with a collaborative spirit will ensure that we meet new and emerging needs within higher education, healthcare, and the research environment that are seen in their reflected world.
I value the opportunity to learn from others and place importance on building relationships with my colleagues and my community. I look forward to working with you.
