Briscoe Library Welcomes Christina “Christy” Tyson

Christina “Christy” Tyson joined Briscoe Library on March 1 as the new Liaison to the School of Dentistry. She will work with faculty and students to integrate library resources in the curriculum, research, and clinical practice. Christy was a Dental Hygienist for 15 years prior to earning her MLIS from the University of North Carolina. Her experience in dentistry along with her experience in educational programming, customer service, and project management are an ideal mix that will ensure her successful contribution to the library’s liaison program. Christy comes from the Atlanta Fulton Public Library, where she¬†worked in collection management. Prior to that, she spent a year setting up a new library in China and six months evaluating a collection in Tanzania. We are excited to welcome Christy as a new member of our team!
