It is with mixed emotions that I will be leaving the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, New England Region this week. My last day will be Tuesday, June 2, 2015. I started at the Lamar Soutter Library at the University of Massachusetts Medical School on a learning contract when I was an MLIS student at The University of Alabama School of Library and Information Studies. In 2012, I was hired into the RML and worked as a project coordinator, where I spent part of my time working on the Public Health Information Project and then moved on to the role of Outreach and Technology Coordinator. I have coordinated the efforts of the Healthcare Workforce Community of Interest, participated in our region’s Focused Outreach effort, hosted multiple PubMed and Technology webinars, and coordinated the exhibits program of the NER. Most recently, I spent a significant amount of my time on moving our website to the Drupal content management system.
While in my position at the NN/LM NER, I have met many people and learned from every one of them. I have been fortunate to meet many new friends and colleagues that have made an impact on me and my career. Thank you for all of the experiences we’ve shared! I am happy to be remaining in the region and will be moving on to the position of Reference Librarian at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary in Boston, MA. I hope to continue the relationships I have built across the region, albeit in a new capacity. I expect to still see everyone at NAHSL and MAHSLIN and will remain on the MAHSLIN Board. I look forward to keeping in touch and seeing you at the regional conferences.
