Library Services welcomes Brian Chambers, City of Hope’s first Discovery and Access Librarian! As Discovery and Access Librarian, Brian will focus on: resource integration across library and institutional systems; implementation and coordination of discovery services and tools, such as a federated search tool; management of copy and original cataloging, acquisitions, license review, and product trials and evaluation; coordinate usage statistics and reporting; and management of our interlibrary loan and document delivery service.
Before joining us, Brian worked as an Executive Leadership Liaison at Hathaway-Sycamores Child & Family Services and a Project Coordinator for the Autism Genetic Resource Exchange (AGRE) at Autism Speaks. Earlier in his career, he worked as a Librarian & Researcher Liaison at TDI Library Services and as Operations Coordinator of Interlibrary Loans and Document Delivery at the J. Paul Leonard Library, San Francisco State University.
Brian’s experience includes research support, data analysis, and project management. He has also trained as a Performance Excellence examiner for the California Council of Excellence.
He received a bachelor degree in English and psychology from San Francisco State University, and his M.L.I.S from San Jose State University.
Please join me in welcoming Brian to City of Hope!
