We recently asked her a few questions:

What is your position title and what is your interest in libraries?

Education and Reference Assistant, my interest in libraries is the constant learning and helping others learn

What do you like most about it so far?

The enthusiasm of learning as well as offering opportunities to learn and participate in projects.

What is your educational background?

My background is in Biology and American Studies. I attended the University of New Mexico for both of my undergraduate degrees and currently at DU for my masters.

What are some other jobs you have had?

Server, Vet Tech, Student Employee for disability organizations, Administrative Assistant for a Dental Clinic and tutor

What’s an interesting tidbit that you would like others to know about you?

I am a certified archery instructor and have instructed children with Autism

How do you spend your free time?

I read A LOT. If I’m not reading I’m bothering my cat Yuki or baking.

Is there any additional information you would like to share about yourself?

I am a book reviewer, mainly for young adult novels, because I have an addiction to literature and it can get expensive. I am a long distance runner and have done 3 half marathons (2 in NM, 1 in FL).

What do you hope to gain from being working at HSL?

I hope to gain experience in teaching, which I have never done in a formal setting. Also get to know the inner workings of a Science Library and how collaboration is done with the rest of campus.

macOS Tip: Automatically open files with EndNote

EndNote allows you to import citation files from external databases. However, some of these files (e.g. nbib, RIS) are simple plain-text files and, as such, macOS may not recognize them automatically as files that you want to open with EndNote to import their references. To learn how to set up your macOS computer to automatically open such external citation files with EndNote as a way to import references, follow the example below:

one

Say we would like to import these PubMed search results as references. Click on the “Send to” menu:

two

Select “Citation manager” and “Create File”. PubMed will export an nbib file to your computer. Select that file in the Finder and use the “Get Info” command/menu item:

three

four

In the Info window that comes up for the file, select the “Open with:” menu and select the EndNote app (make sure to select the EndNote app and not just the enclosing EndNote folder:

Also make sure to check the “Always Open With” option. Finally, click the “Change All” button in the Info window so macOS knows to automatically open every future nbib file the same way.

Once you’ve done this, double-clicking nbib files will prompt macOS to open them with EndNote (you may be prompted to select your EndNote library) and import the contents as references.
