Luz Sinha, the librarian for the Dayton Children's Hospital Library, is very interested in Evidence-Based Medicine.  It's not an academic interest.  Luz sincerely supports her researchers, residents and nursing students in the pursuit of the best information; information that is not anecdotal but is backed by solid research methodologies.  You might say that she is a stickler, but when people's lives depend on your work, being a stickler is a good thing!

Wright State University's Department of Pediatrics is located at Dayton's Children's as well as nursing students from Sinclair Community College and Cedarville University. Luz proctors exams, conducts literature searches, makes decisions regarding collection development (in conjunction with Wright State Libraries), handles physical resources in the library and so forth.

Luz feels it's very important to stay current with both library practices and evolving practices in medicine and academic instruction.  Attending webinars is helpful, but going to at least one major conference per year is a must. Her favorite is the Medical Library Association Annual Meeting and Exhibition.
