About

I have held multiple positions in the McGill Library since 2004. I started my career in the Life Sciences Library (then known as the Health Sciences Library) but quickly moved into website development followed by work on McGill's institutional repository of open access publications. As Library Coordinator of RUIS McGill, I worked on making health information more widely accessible throughout the province, a project which involved the four Integrated University Health Networks in Quebec (réseaux universitaires intégrés de santé) but which ultimately did not go forward due to funding issues. I am currently the Liaison Librarian for Epidemiology, Biostatistics, and Occupational Health; Family Medicine; Infectious Diseases; and Pediatrics.
