A week before all of the library staff transitioned to working remotely, we had the pleasure of welcoming our new Reference & Instruction Librarian for the Mount Sinai West and Morningside Campus, Carrie Levinson, MLIS.
Carrie joins us from The New York Academy of Medicine Library (NYAM), where she served as Reference Services and Outreach Librarian, answering reference questions of all kinds from the general public, corporate clients, and Fellows, Members, and internal staff of NYAM. She also managed the Library’s social media accounts and blog, as well as the annual Color Our Collections campaign, which highlights coloring books showcasing collections of cultural institutions around the world. Prior to her role at NYAM, she was Scholarly Communications Librarian at Touro College, where she implemented and administered the Touro College & University System’s institutional repository, Touro Scholar, as well as taught classes and webinars on various aspects of scholarly communications and information literacy, including open access, authors’ rights, and altmetrics.
Outside work, Carrie enjoys walking around New York (City and State), going to museums, reading, and trying to get her incredibly lazy cat to play with the many, many toys provided to him.
Welcome Carrie to the Mount Sinai team!
