Staff Profile: MLIS Intern Emily

Hi, my name is Emily and I am a current Education and Reference intern at the Health Sciences Library. I am attending the University of Denver’s graduate Library Sciences program and anticipate graduating next spring. I think the standard answer for anyone interested in library school is that they love books and this is certainly true for me: I have bookshelves overflowing and have more books than I have time to read. What attracted me to Health Sciences Librarianship in particular is the fact that I have been around the medical community my entire life. Having a mother who is a Nurse Practitioner kind of sets you up for some kind of medical career and while I couldn’t — or didn’t want to — be a practitioner, I have found I can serve the medical community in other ways. I have certainly been enjoying my time on campus and love getting to meet new people daily.
