Donna's Responsibilities

As the Library Director, my team and I support the Center’s mission by providing the latest published information and customized services, workshops, and information sessions, ensuring excellent customer service for our Library user community. We provide content and negotiate institutional subscriptions for a cost-effective and focused collection that compliments the research and medical activities of our constituents.  Most of the published literature and information we provide is delivered via our Library Website.  Developing a cutting-edge Library is an ongoing activity as well as establishing strong Library partnerships with both MSK departments and external Libraries.  Developing communication and marketing activites to inform our users about all Library initiatives is essential for growth and success.


Donna's Office Hours

Available 8:30am to 5:00pm, please call/email to schedule an appointment. I am interested in hearing about the research and medical activities being conducted by the MSK Library Community and how we can become a part of your workflow process.
