Health Science Librarians

Bernadette Colley is a solo Library Administrator at Temple Street Children’s University Hospital, Dublin, Ireland.  She shares her thougths on being a librarian.

What is your favourite thing about being a librarian?

“Finding the ‘golden result’ – the article/search strategy that is exactly what the user was looking for, whether they knew about it or not”.


What do you like about being a librarian?

“I get a great deal of satisfaction from matching research to its intended audience – there’s a lot of relevant research that isn’t getting “found” and this is a shame.  I also like that it is an evolving profession and therefore challenging – no chance to ever become complacent”.

Anne Madden, Assistant Librarian, Library & Information Services, St. Vincent’s University Hospital,Dublin, Ireland.
