The CIRHR is excited to welcome our new Library Technician, Sarah Morgan!
With a Library and Information Technician diploma from Seneca College, as well as a Bachelor of Arts & Science (Honours) from the University of Toronto (Woodsworth College), Sarah comes to the CIRHR from the library at Public Health Ontario, an interdisciplinary research organization providing scientific and technical advice to the Ministry of Health and local public health units. In that role, she says, she’s been supporting researchers, practitioners, and students at all stages of their engagement with information resources, from access through publication.
“I was drawn to working in libraries by my interest in the systems we use to access information - information literacy and access to information have such an impact on the way we experience the world around us, and I love the opportunity to help people navigate from their idea to the information they need.”
