I enjoy searching the literature as I answer questions for patrons, facilitate their historical research projects, and create library exhibits or displays for special events or specific classes. Educating visitors touring the library is energizing whether they're students, adults, International guests, or visiting scholars. I participate in organizations relating to medical libraries, dental history and anesthesia history and appreciate the benefits of the collegiality and knowledge received at those meetings.
Dr. Anthony Kovac and I have collaborated on three presentations about Horace Wells and the Wells Death Mask which is part of the Anesthesia Collection in the Clendening History of Medicine Library & Museum. We are always looking for more information in this area.

After collaborating with A.R. Dykes Library in their journal deaccession, we began reviewing their books. For all of 2015 I coordinated the selection of Dykes books for transfer back to the Clendening and then organized the cleaning, moving, and interfiling of 4000 plus volumes. Our next major project may be updating some equipment that keeps our library protected.
