Marisol's Responsibilities

As a Research Informationist III, I work closely with the Reference Team to provide on target literature searches to our MSK nurses, clinicians, researchers, patients and their caregivers.  I also provide instructional services by teaching bibliographic management tools and database searching. Furthermore, I am the Clinical Librarian liaison to the Nursing Department, where I provide customized training on Library and evidence-based practice resources. Other professional activities include presentations to the nurse residency seminar, instructional lectures and extensive literature searches for the evidence-based nursing committees.  I am also a contributing member to the internal MSK Nursing Newsletter, where I provide updates on Library-related topics.

My professional role as a librarian at MSK also includes systematic review searches, contributions to the Library blog, participation in campus wide events, where I assist in marketing Library resources and services.
