Farewell to Re Mishra, the NN/LMSCR Health Professions Coordinator. She will be greatly missed in both the NN/LM SCR office and throughout the Region.
Since she began working at the NN/LM SCR in 1998, she has contributed significantly to the NN/LM program. She was responsible for the development of several classes, including “TOXNET: Technology and Environmental Information” and “PubMed for Experts.” She was also responsible for the NN/LM SCR obtaining both Continuing Nursing Education accreditation and Continuing Pharmacy Education accreditation. As a result, classes throughout the country can be offered for health professional accreditation. She taught hundreds of classes throughout the Region and conducted exhibits throughout the U.S. By far her biggest contribution to the Region was her coordination of the NN/LM SCR DOCLINE program. Since 1998, she has been responsible for assisting Network members with DOCLINE and other ILL activities. Her knowledge of DOCLINE practices and procedures was well-known throughout the country and she was frequently consulted by librarians outside of the SCR. From 2006-2008, she worked at the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education where she promoted NLM databases on a national scale. In 2008, she returned to the NN/LM SCR office where she served as the Health Professions Coordinator, providing training and assistance to a variety of health professionals, including allied health groups.
We wish Re all the best in the future.
