I am pleased to announce that Nena Schvaneveldt, MSLIS, AHIP, will be joining the Eccles Health Sciences Library faculty as an Assistant Librarian on September 16, 2018. Nena comes to us with extensive experience working with health sciences faculty, staff, students, and administrators at Roseman University’s South Jordan campus where she currently serves as the Assistant Director of Library Services. Concurrently with that role, Nena has worked as a Reference and Instruction Librarian and was responsible for developing and teaching information literacy to PharmD, MBA, DMD, and BSN students to support evidence-based practice. Nena has also provided research support to faculty, including consulting on systematic, scoping, and other reviews.

She will be joining the Eccles Library Reference and Education department where she will provide research and instruction support to the health sciences community, as well as pursue her own research into the information seeking behaviors of health professionals.
Please join me in welcoming Nena to the University of Utah!
