The IU School of Medicine Ruth Lilly Medical Library is pleased to welcome Molly Montgomery to the role of Assistant Director for Medical Education and Access Services. She will start on Monday, July 24. Molly joins RLML from the Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine where she served as the Director of Library Services and Assistant Professor since 2018.
Her love for librarianship began while earning a Master of Library Science at Texas Women’s University and she is currently pursuing a Master of Public Health through Idaho State University. Some of Molly’s favorite aspects of medical librarianship are teaching, helping with research projects, teaching the value of evidence-based medicine, and assisting learners with gaining confidence in their ability to read, understand, and apply research.
While she looks forward to learning from the team at the Ruth Lilly Medical Library, she prioritizes ways to contribute as well. Getting acquainted with the medical students and faculty is a high priority with the goal of determining how to best serve instruction and education needs. Additionally, she will be working to integrate library instruction related to evidence-based medicine into the medical curriculum, serving as the liaison to the medical students at the Gary campus, and supporting the Access Services team.
While taking a break from librarianship by practicing self-care, Molly enjoys hiking and biking, playing board games, collecting & building Lego sets, watching documentaries, and reading.
