Congratulations to Laura Menard on her new opportunity at Northern Kentucky University. Laura will be taking over as their new Head of Library Access Services next month. Laura joined the Ruth Lilly Medical Library team as the Assistant Director for Medical Education and Access Services in 2018. During her time here, she has accomplished a great deal including establishing our Apps and Zerts in-house training program, completing the Medical Library Association’s competitive Research Training Institute, and being awarded the Ida and George Eliot Prize for her BMJ EBM article: Integrating evidence-based medicine skills into a medical school curriculum: A quantitative outcomes assessment (Menard L, Blevins AE, Trujillo DJ, Lazarus KH.
