NLM Associate Fellowship
The National Library of Medicine is seeking host sites for the 2020-2021 second-year experience for its current group of NLM Associate Fellows. Host sites are health sciences libraries which can offer a strong opportunity for an early-career health sciences librarian, with exposure to the full range of work and experiences of the institution. NLM is seeking host sites that are willing to fund the stipend and health insurance, while NLM provides funding for professional development, interview, colloquium attendance, and relocation. The deadline for letters of interest is April 1, 2020.
A little bit about the Associates:
- Brenna Cox is interested in consumer health, public health, nutrition, and complementary and alternative medicine. She would like to learn how to conduct systematic reviews and would be interested in projects related to the organization of information or scholarly communication. She’s also interested in outreach and has prior experience working with social media, research guides, and book displays. Her current project at NLM is Investigating the addition of CPT©4 procedure codes to MedlinePlus Connect.
- Sharon Han is interested in outreach and engagement, user experience, data visualization, and public health informatics. She looks forward to engaging in collaborative efforts with institutional partners that value data-driven and human-centered health science education and research.
- Eden Kinzel is interested in instruction, small group consultations, literature searching and systematic reviews, social media, and other library content creation. During the first year of the fellowship, she gained exposure to data analysis and data visualization and would enjoy continuing to build those skills. She is also excited to learn more about research data management, health information literacy, and open access publishing.
- Louise To is interested in consumer and clinical health information products, health IT policy, and health disparities. For her second year, she hopes to gain more experience in clinical librarianship, data visualization, and user research and analytics.
All the Associates are interested in a second year. Each year the Associate Fellows select projects proposed by NLM staff. More information on hosting an NLM Associate Fellow is available on the NLM web site.
