Healey Library Gets 2 New Librarians!

Healey Library is thrilled to announce that 2 wonderful librarians will be joining our staff. 

J Troy is joining us on August 21st as our new Liaison Librarian, in our Reference, Outreach, & Instruction unit. J comes to us with over 10 years of experience as a Teacher/Librarian at Milton High School, where he taught information literacy classes to students, so that they learned to search, evaluate, synthesize, and share information effectively and appropriately. He collaborated with other teachers and staff to provide resources and create new curricula, and handled collection development for the library.  He also advised students in various clubs and activities, and hired, trained, and supervised the Student Technology Assistance Team. J holds a Certificate in Public Policy from U Mass Dartmouth (2020), an MS in Library & Information Science from Drexel University (2012), and a BA in Religious Studies from Stonehill College (2007). With J joining us, we are planning to revive our liaison librarian program and to include more librarians in collection development activities. 

Christine Moynihan is joining us on September 11th as our new Scholarly Communications, Data, & Affordable Learning Librarian.  She is currently the Open Educational Resources and Technology Librarian at Salem State University, and previously, she worked as a Project Coordinator in Instructional Design at Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health and at the University of Massachusetts T.H. Chan Medical School. She also has prior experience as a grant-funded OER Coordinator at Salem State University, and in administrative and technology roles at Boston University, Labouré College, and the Informed Medical Decisions Foundation. She has also undertaken private consulting roles in archival digitization and historical research. Christine holds a Master of Library & Information Science from the University of Alabama (2018) and 2 degrees from U Mass Boston (hooray!) – a MA in History & Archives (2013) and a BA in English (1999). Christine will be helping us to grow our work in Open Educational Resources, support for Open Access publishing, Research Data Management, ScholarWorks management, and more. 

We’re very excited, and hope you will join us in welcoming J and Christine to Healey Library!
