I am a Library Services Assistant at Cushing/Whitney Medical Library.

My job duties include :

  • Coordinating front-line services at the Information Desk in the Cushing/Whitney Medical Library
  • Perform all duties of a front-line service assistant as appropriate to meet operational needs
  • Organize department education calendar
  • Room reservations
  • Serve as a source of information on established procedures and policies for staff and patrons
  • Assist with printing, photocopying, and scanning
  • Handle and refer a wide range of  questions in person, by telephone, and via email
  • Assist patrons with online searches and database selection
  • Provide assistance requesting interlibrary loan material and related inquiries
  • Train library staff who are members of the Cross-Departmental Team

While a life learner, I have earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Information and Library Science with a concentration in Psychology. Because of the time spent in the physical and virtual library, I decided to pursue and earn a Master of Library of Science degree. As a result, there are more opportunities to further assist patrons/customers in their quest for knowledge and enlightenment.
