deweydecimal13501 has 20+ years experience and specializes in Library Director.

I work as the Director, Library Services (MLS, BS)  for a health system.  I am responsible for two hospital libraries and a college of nursing library.  I provide library services  for everyone in the health system.   I do a lot of research for the nurses at the hospital as well as work with college of nursing faculty and nursing students providing electronic resources/training for the nurses of tomorrow. 

Thanks, Deweydecimal13501 🙂
