Let’s shine the Member Spotlight on Lynn Warner from University of Cincinnati!
What is/are your role(s) in academic libraries?
I am the Research and Health Sciences Librarian at the Donald C. Harrison Health Sciences Library at the University of Cincinnati. I work with the College of Nursing and the College of Allied Health Sciences. I’m new to UC, before this I worked for many years as a Teaching and Learning Librarian across the river at Northern Kentucky University.
What do you like most about academic library work?
I love teaching information literacy and working with students. Whether in a consult or instruction session, seeing their “aha!” moments is incredibly rewarding. Helping students connect to the information they need and guiding them to become more confident researchers makes me happy!
What are some interesting projects you’ve been involved with lately?
As a part of my role at UC, I assist faculty and students with developing searches for systematic reviews they are conducting. I’m currently working with Nursing faculty on a review about simulation-based education and nursing students.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself.
I am a huge Golden Girls fan, and I recently attended the first ever “GoldenCon.”
Why did you join ALAO?
I joined ALAO when I started my new position at University of Cincinnati. I have attended ALAO conferences in the past, and they have always been so wonderful! I’m looking forward to attending the next one this fall.
