MCL Intern at National Library of Medicine

Emma Kelly, a graduate student intern at the Medical Center Library, has been selected to participate in the School of Library and Information Science 2013 Alternative Spring Break Program at the National Library of Medicine.

Students gain career-enhancing experience working with a medical librarian. Her project will involve editing Wikipedia entries to include links to the NLM’s Medline Plus pages, as well as adding public domain images from the library’s History of Medicine Database.

Emma has worked for the Medical Center Library since beginning her master’s degree in fall of 2011, first as a student assistant, then as a reference intern for the past year. She is looking forward to spending a week with some of the nation’s top medical librarians.  Emma plans to receive her degree in May.
