Linda Hasman comes to us from the University at Buffalo’s Health Sciences Library where, as liaison to the School of Dental Medicine, she provided in-depth research consultations for faculty, staff, residents, and students.
As an active instructor, she conducted course-integrated, small group, and one-on-one instruction in EndNote, PubMed, and Evidence-Based Dentistry resources. Linda was involved in the planning and implementation of the first-ever case based studies course at UB for first-year dental students and acted as facilitator for the course.
She conducted consumer health outreach and research, and is particularly interested in the use of technology and consumer health.
As liaison to the Clinical & Translational Science Institute (CTSI), Linda is looking forward to reaching out to the researchers and clinical researchers of the CTSI. She plans to conduct some informal needs assessment to ascertain how to best support the CTSI.
Linda reports that she is “very excited to get to know the people at the CTSI, learn about their research, and figure out where I can best support the research needs of the CTSI.”
Linda was also a Biomedical Librarian for the National Institute of Health’s clinical research library.
She earned a Master of Science in Library Science from Catholic University in Washington, DC. Linda loves spending time with her husband, two children, and dog. She is an avid reader and enjoys knitting, baking, and exercising (to work off all the baking).
