Three Questions for our Librarians – Sylvie

To introduce our staff to everyone at the Center, we’re rolling out a new series of posts, Three Questions for our Librarians! This month, I asked three questions to Sylvie Larsen, Supervisor, Document Delivery.

What areas can you help MSK users with?
In my position as Supervisor of Document Delivery, I’ve gotten very good at finding tricky citations. I’ve tracked down foreign language articles, meeting abstracts from obsolete societies, and even a thesis from Kuala Lampur. It’s my favorite part of my job – it’s like a scavenger hunt!

What projects have you been working on recently?
Recently, I’ve put together a poster for the Medical Library Association meeting. My team and I looked at information collected from a survey to see how we could improve our service. It can be challenging to know exactly what our users need, especially in an institution like MSK, we’re not only a school, a research center, or a hospital, we’re all three together, so our users needs are different from a lot of other institutions. Checking in with them was very informative.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I would love to see the Northern Lights from one of those ice hotels.
