Three Questions – Celine Soudant

Get to know our newest Research Informationist, Celine Soudant.

  1. What areas can you help MSK users with?

As the embedded nursing librarian, I work closely with nurses to assist them with their research projects and evidence-based practice initiatives. I am also happy to help all MSK users with literature searches, as well as teaching and sharing tips and tricks for efficient searching and staying current with the medical literature. As a Research Informationist, I also provide support with Systematic Reviews.

      2. What projects have you been working on recently?

I just started working at MSK Library in December, so I have been learning about how I can best collaborate with MSK nurses. I’m looking forward to participating in various nursing programs, such as the Nursing Residency Program, the Nursing Research Fellowship, and Magnet reaccreditation.

      3. What is your favorite meal?

Not exactly a meal, but I am known for my love for Japanese tea and chocolate. I like to learn about the methods to brew tea. Savoring a cup of tea with a piece of chocolate feels like a meditation session, which is always good in our fast-paced city life.
