The Library is pleased to announce Chelsea Misquith as the new Public Health and Research Support Librarian. Chelsea (pronounced Chel-SEE-uh) comes to us from the Ruth Lilly Medical Library at Indiana University School of Medicine, where she worked as the Emerging Technologies Librarian. At IU, she served on Indiana’s COVID-19 Evidence-Based Rapid Response Team (a collaboration between the medical library and the state and local Departments of Health). She was a member of IU’s team-based systematic review service, which consults on search methodology and guidelines and standards, as well as providing library- and course-based instruction. She also brings experience with virtual reality and 3D printing services in the health sciences.
At Brown, Chelsea will provide research support and develop undergraduate and graduate education/instruction for the School of Public Health community. In addition, she will collaborate with the other health sciences librarians to develop and manage the Library’s literature review service and to support clinical faculty and residents at the affiliated hospitals of Alpert Medical School.
