This month, I asked three questions to Ryan McComas,
What areas can you help MSK users with?
I primarily work with our print and electronic collection, meaning I am responsible for access to databases, books, and journals. I am available to take any new resource recommendations, catalog new acquisitions to make them discoverable in our catalog, and to help our users with any access problems they have with library content.
What projects have you been working on recently?
MSK library recently migrated all our records to a new library management system called Alma/Primo and its new discovery and access tool, OneSearch. This next generation system is customized to allow MSK library staff to manage patron and catalog records, circulate materials to users, and produce usage statistics for analyzing our collection. In addition, my new summer project will consist of analyzing and weeding our entire print collection to make room for newer library acquisitions.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I actually enjoy vacationing to cold weather places, so my ultimate experience would be travelling to and around the Antarctic peninsula via Patagonia. Maybe not realistic, but hopefully someday!
