Library Leaders Series: The Role of Health Sciences Library in Transforming Research & Education with Nicole Capdarest-Arest

Libraries are at a pivotal crossroads. Changes in technology, in research, and teaching and learning have created a very different context for health science libraries. This evolving context presents the question of how library leaders can reposition themselves to support research and education to create an environment where libraries can emerge as central and vibrant resources for their institutions.

Join library leaders from the Claremont Colleges (8/22) and the University of California Davis (8/29), as they discuss the intersection between research and education and the critical leadership role of the University Library for this Library Lecture Series. This event is free and open to the public.

Nicole Capdarest-Arest, MA(LIS), AHIP is the head of the Blaisdell Medical Library at University of California, Davis, where she spearheads library initiatives and works closely with faculty, staff and students in the School of Medicine, Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing, Clinical and Translational Science Center, University of California Davis Health, and the affiliated research centers and institutes. Prior to that she was a clinical librarian at Lane Medical Library, Stanford University School of Medicine, and an emerging technologies librarian at Arizona Health Sciences Library, University of Arizona. She earned her undergraduate degree at Stanford University, her Masters in Information and Library Science from the University of Arizona, and completed the National Library of Medicine Georgia Biomedical Informatics Course at Brasstown Valley, Georgia. Her special areas of focus include strategic planning, design thinking, program development, instructional design, and research collaboration.
