I am really excited to have the opportunity to write for this blog! My name is Irene Lubker and I work as a medical librarian at the Tompkins McCaw Library which is the Virginia Commonwealth University’s Health Sciences library.
At Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU), we have schools of Allied Health Professions, Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing and Pharmacy. I have liaison duties to the School of Dentistry and Public Health programs in the School of Medicine. I also work with dietetic interns who come to the VCU hospitals for their year long internship because in my previous life I used to be a dietitian. So working with students and faculty in the School of Dentistry, Public Health programs and dietetic interns makes for a very interesting life. To add to the fun, I am also a doctoral student in the School of Education.
