Kate Kelly: Putting it into Practice: applying the skill set
Kate is Director of Library Services at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI).RCSI is currently building a new academic education centre incorporating a new library and has been recruiting for new positions over the last year. Kate has spent most of her library career in health sciences working in the USA and Ireland. She has an MSc in Health Services Research and is a fellow of the Library Association of Ireland (FLAI) and distinguished member of the US Academy of Health Information Professionals (AHIP).
In support of its strategy “Growth and Excellence” RCSI is building a new medical education centre incorporating a new health sciences library. Planning for this building challenged library staff at all levels to consider and reconsider what it is we do, how we do it, and why we do it. What if anything differentiates a health sciences library and health sciences librarians from other libraries? Using RCSI Library as a case study this presentation will share some of the learnings from our benchmarking exercises as prelude to a restructuring and the thinking behind resulting new positions.
