Greetings from Emily, the New SCR Technology Coordinator
Hello all! My name is Emily Hurst, and I am the new Technology Coordinator for the NN/LM South Central Region. I started the position this week and have already learned a lot about what is going on in the region.
In the near future I will teach technology classes, review e-licensing options, and serve as the technology adviser for our region. I will also be the state liaison for Louisiana.
Prior to beginning this position, I worked as an Instructional Services Librarian at the Briscoe Library at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio where I taught classes that ranged from PubMed to monthly Emerging Technology Brown Bag luncheons. I have worked in medical libraries for the past few years, first as a Graduate Assistant at the University of North Carolina Health Sciences Library and later as the Library Intern at Rex Healthcare in Raleigh, NC. I also have experience in public as well as academic library settings. I earned my Master of Science in Library Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I received my Bachelor of Arts degree in History from the University of St. Thomas in Houston, TX.
In my free time I enjoy baking, watching old movies and exploring the city. I am an avid sports fan and love attending games. I also enjoy traveling and I am currently on a mission to fill my National Parks Passport.
I have a passion for technology and its integration into library and medical environments. I am very excited to be part of the NN/LM SCR, and look forward to the challenges ahead. I look forward to working with and for you, and I hope to be able to meet many of you personally very soon. Please feel free to contact me with questions, comments, or concerns.
