Last week we bid a fond farewell to Jil, our Medical School Librarian and Technology-Enhanced Learning Lead. This week, we’re delighted to welcome Lisa McLaren who has taken on the role.
Lisa has been working alongside Jil for the past month as part of the handover so many of you will have already met her at the University and RSCH library sites, but below is a little more about her role and her background, in Lisa’s own words:
“As Medical School Librarian, my job is quite wide ranging! From teaching all types of students about lit searching and academic skills to managing the resources, attending curriculum management boards and working on technology enhanced learning (TEL) projects, no two days are ever the same. I really enjoy being student facing again and TEL has always been a real passion of mine.
“I’ve got a varied background and have spent the last 12 years building a portfolio career, with posts in the NHS, Higher Education, Public and Special Libraries. I’ve managed some libraries, worked as a Health librarian and even taken the odd rhyme time session.
“In my spare time, I enjoy eating cake, making myself look like an eejit at Zumba classes, pretending to train for triathlons and watching 20 minutes of a movie before either falling asleep or being asked to feed someone.”
