TML Library Liaisons: Meet Kim Brady
Hi! I'm Kim Brady, a new Education & Research Librarian at Tompkins-McCaw Library. I started here in November and am excited to be a part of VCU Libraries and the greater VCU and Richmond communities. I earned my B.A. in Psychology, concentrating in Neuroscience, from Kenyon College (Gambier, OH) in 2006 and went on to work for the Cleveland Clinic's Alumni Library (Cleveland, OH). I earned my M.S. in Information, Library and Information Services, from the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor) in 2010. My work in Michigan included field research on information exchange among dialysis patients, and a position with the University of Michigan Health System's cancer and cardiovascular patient resource libraries. I'm interested in the role of the physician and health team in providing and promoting patient access to consumer health information resources.
As an Education & Research Librarian, I will be acting as a Liaison to the School of Medicine's Basic Sciences and the VCU Health System. I'm available by appointment for individual and group consultations as well as classroom instruction. I also hold office hours in the Learning Center at Hunton Student Center (Room 209) on Friday mornings from 9am-12pm. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions about library services including literature searches, RefWorks, PubMed, or anything else!
