Hello from the new MWRC Librarian
I wanted to post a quick introduction to myself, Alexandra Sarkozy, the new MWRC Patient Education Librarian. I'm excited to be here: I am already learning the ropes, and I'm especially looking forward to working with the wonderful staff and collections at the Wellness Resource Center.
I most recently worked in the research library at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, where I worked with doctors and research scientists conducting literature searches, selecting materials, teaching classes on databases and research management, and creating subject guides on a range of hospital, cancer, research and technology topics. Previously, I worked as a science reference librarian at Brooklyn Public Library, where I helped maintain and provided access to a large collection of books and electronic resources on science, social science, philosophy, psychology and medicine, including consumer health.
I graduated from the School of Information ten years ago, and it feels good to be back at UofM!
Thank you, everyone, for the warm welcome. Watch this space for more updates!
