Experience

As Director, Jolene oversees information and access services at the Mulford Library and serves as a liaison to University Libraries' technical and computer services departments. With the other librarians at Mulford, she provides multifaceted reference service in the library (face-to-face, phone, email, chat) and meets with faculty and staff in their offices or labs; conducts literature searches for clinical care and research; and has been a guest lecturer in courses in the Colleges of Health Science and Human Service, Medicine, and Nursing. Jolene facilitated problem-based learning small groups of first-year medical students for Clinical Reasoning and teaches in "Mastering the Biomedical Literature: Skill Sets for the Virtual Environment," a two-week elective for fourth-year medical students. She selects material in the pre-clinical sciences for Mulford.

She is closely involved with the Department of Physician Assistant Studies, for which she was the Scholarly Project Coordinator for a number of years. She currently lectures in PHYA 6130: Research and Statistics in the Physician Assistant Program and PHYA 6500 Introduction to Clinical Practice on evidence-based practice, searching the medical literature, and using EndNote. 

Jolene has worked at the Mulford Library since 1995, when she was hired as the Reference/Education Librarian; in 2005, she became the Coordinator of Information Services. Prior to her work at the University of Toledo (Medical College of Ohio; Medical University of Ohio), she worked as a reference/instruction librarian at Cleveland State University.
