I lead a team of library faculty and staff in support of the education, research, clinical translation, interprofessional education, and population health initiatives of the Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM). I manage the operations of, plan, coordinate, and promote the Library’s education program and learning resources as well as oversee the operations of reference and mediated searching. I am also responsible for developing and implementing strategies to improve curricular integration and support for the nine IUSM centers around the state along with my colleagues at the Ruth Lilly Medical Library.
In addition, I am the Evidence Based Thread Leader for IUSM and work with a team of medical educators to design and oversee learning objectives related to biostatistics, critical appraisal, scientific method, public health, and clinical informatics across all four years of our undergraduate medical education program.
