On Monday, I presented at the ACRL-Science & Technology Section Poster Session on “Expanding the Role of the Science Librarian to the Bioinformatics Domain.” My poster presentation highlighted the evolving, multifaceted aspects of my role in instruction and liaison work in bioinformatics in order to meet the needs of science students at the undergraduate and graduate level. My responsibilities have expanded in four directions: (1)Research interest, (2)Instruction, (3)Liaison work as an Embedded Librarian, and (4)Collection development for the Biomedical Informatics Graduate Program Proposal.
By advancing scientific knowledge through research and publication on bioinformatics, I was equipped to teach about data literacy in the following roles:
I taught new trends in bioinformatics research to the following student populations:
Keeping at the forefront of bioinformatics research enabled me to offer innovative instruction and liaison work at the point of need to advance ZSR Library’s mission to help students and faculty succeed. Thanks to Lynn, Roz, and Hu for coming out to support my presentation.
