Tell us about your journey to working in a medical library.

My journey to working in a medical library was not straight forward. During my graduate education, I believed medical librarianship would be a good fit for me based on my personal experience and interests. I completed several projects with this end in mind but unfortunately at that time I was living in Chicago where it was extremely difficult to get any academic library position. So, instead I ended up in publishing, followed by a community college part time position, then a public library in New Hampshire before landing my first academic library position at UND’s Chester Fritz Library. Next, I managed a community college library in Iowa before returning to UND and joining SMHS’s Library Resources. It was a long road but definitely worth it for the experience gained and the knowledge that Medical Librarianship is the right career for me.
