In our "Behind the Desk" interview series, we meet the people at the heart of Mount Sinai Health System Libraries.
Today we have the pleasure of introducing you to Chelsea Rein, our new librarian at the Phillips School of Nursing at Beth Israel. Read on to learn more about the latest member of our team:
What were you doing before coming to Levy Library?
Before coming to the Levy Library I was working in a Public K-8 school in Boston, MA as a library aide. I also went to graduate school and received my MLIS from Simmons University.
Describe the duties and responsibilities of your job.
I will be the Librarian at the Phillips School of Nursing at Mount Sinai Beth Israel. My duties include supporting the reference and instruction needs of the nursing school students and faculty. I will provide reference management expertise and help develop educational programs for information literacy.
What do you anticipate being the most challenging and rewarding aspects of your job?
I think what is challenging about this position is that it is new. The program needs are changing so my job is really about finding exactly what the information needs of the nursing students and faculty are specifically, and catering to that. What is rewarding to me is the teaching. I love that I can help faculty and students, and also have a positive impact on patient care.
What are your interests outside of work?
Reading, yoga, traveling and finding the best tea shops…. I’m also an avid movie-watcher and true-crime podcast listener. I’m currently learning Tai Chi.
If you see Chelsea, be sure to stop and say hello!
