We have been fortunate to have Amy Nurnberger work with us this summer at the Briscoe Library. Amy joined us in June to observe the various facets of library services. She assisted with a website usability study and also completed a number of projects, including creating a report on the impact factor of journals in which researchers funded by the Institute for Integration of Medicine and Science have published; assigning local journal links to the Reading List published by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecologists; cataloging medical instrument artifacts; developing an instructional video; and updating several tip sheets for using library resources.
Following on a career in the pharmaceutical industry, Amy is in the midst of earning a Masters in Information Studies from the University of Texas at Austin. She has finished her first year in the program, and will continue in her final year to focus on her main area of interest, academic libraries. Amy looks forward to delving deeper into areas of academic librarianship that will make use of her background in biochemistry, pharmaceuticals, and quality control. We wish her well as she continues her studies.
