Hi, my name is Gary Atwood and I am the new Health Sciences Education Librarian here at Dana Medical Library. Prior to UVM, I worked at Springfield College in Springfield, MA as a Reference and Instruction Librarian. I hold a BA in Political Science and an MA in American History from the University of Maine and a MSLIS from Simmons College.
Like all librarians, I have a wide variety of job responsibilities. I provide reference and instruction services to students, faculty, and staff as well as the clinicians at Fletcher Allen Health Care. In addition, I am the liaison to the Department of Nursing, Psychiatry, and Neurological Sciences as well as the College of Medicine’s Clerkship program. I am also involved in expanding the library’s education efforts in areas such as the use of technology in teaching and in teaching online.
In my spare time, I like to read, explore Vermont with my family, and work with our dog Bady. I am also a passionate Liverpool Football Club supporter. Go Reds!
