m . j . Tooey

巴尔的摩马里兰大学健康科学和公共服务图书馆执行主任

m . j . Tooey首先,告诉我们一些你自己的情况(家乡,现在所在的地方,家庭,爱好,社区活动?)你现在做什么工作?

到目前为止,我的生活包括了一次“锈带”之旅。我出生在克利夫兰,在那里度过了我的童年,我生活在一个充满爱、有创造力、合群、偶尔不正常的爱尔兰、波兰和德国家庭(不都是吗)。在我13岁的时候,我们搬到了匹兹堡,我在那里度过了我的青少年和20岁。我喜欢那里,并作为铁杆钢人队球迷在克莱里昂州立大学和匹兹堡大学(向皮特欢呼!)长大。我结婚后,我们搬到了巴尔的摩,在这里住了24年。事实上,我住在郊区,确切地说,是艾莉科特城。大约五年前,巴尔的摩地区最终让我筋疲力尽,我决定我真的喜欢这里。这真的是一个非常独特、古怪、可爱的地方,可以如此迷人。你怎么能不喜欢一个约翰·沃特斯称之为家的地方,那里每年都会举办庆祝长发的“荣誉”大赛?

我和Ron结婚25年了,他是一个非常有耐心、善良、稳重的人。他认为我是被狼养大的。 My daughter Greer is a sophomore at the University of Maryland, College Park majoring in sorority and fun, as best as we can tell. I am proud of her because she heads to MedlinePlus first for self diagnosis whenever she has any ailment. She’s a hypochondriac like her mother.

In addition to being a hypochondriac, my other hobbies include travel, gardening (ask me about my new bog garden – what a challenge!), music (I am eclectic in my tastes), trend watching, learning, reading, embracing ambiguity, and thinking about how the world would be a better place if I ran it. My aspirational goals are to lead a healthy, well-grounded life, to be a good friend, and to become a Master gardener. My community involvement seems to focus on homelessness, health disparities, the environment, and issues surrounding children. My volunteer life is closely intertwined with the Medical Library Association and the Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries.

I love my job as the executive director of the Health Sciences Library. I’ve been here about 23 years and I tell everyone I clawed my way to the top but the reality is that I have not held the same job in the library for more than five years. Of course, I just passed my fifth anniversary as executive director. I am not exactly sure what that means.

描述你的一些职责,以及你或你的组织如何适应学术交流网络。

作为图书馆的执行董事,我认为自己是图书馆员工的最终资源人员。通过我的意思是,我的工作是要确保工作人员有他们需要完成工作的资源。新利18luck在线娱乐网当我为图书馆设定了战略方向时,我的工作需要一个有远见的成分。我经常是图书馆的公众面貌,我试图赢得朋友,并代表图书馆影响人们。我在很多不同的校园委员会和工作队中服务。我与当地的同事密切合作,全国各种各样的图书馆相关项目。我们的图书馆与国家医学图书馆有五年的国家,东南/大西洋地区。这项责任为我提供了在东南部的十个东南部,Puerto Rico,美国维尔京群岛和华盛顿特区的医疗图书馆访问和学习的机会。从医院到学术保健中心的医疗图书馆中的问题,担忧等知识等问题是什么。

I guess libraries are all part of the great scholarly communication “circle of life.” Some of the most rewarding work I have done over the last few years has been with my colleagues in the publishing industry. I am not an extremist and tend to be suspicious of anyone who is. I rarely see things in black and white and have found there is more to be gained through conversation than confrontation. When I was president of the Medical Library Association I had opportunities to bring librarians and publishers together and found we frequently had similar goals when it came to scholarly communications. I love my participation in the FASEB Library Advisory Committee. I have had a great time participating in SSP programs. And I am finishing up a very enlightening term on the New England Journal of Medicine’s Library Advisory Board. I serve on the Board of Directors of the Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries (AAHSL) and I am very proud of its support for, and participation in the Chicago Collaborative which brings together academic librarians and STM publishers to discuss issues of mutual interest. With every contact and every question there are opportunities to understand and overturn misconceptions.

你现在的职位是什么样的职业道路?

音乐剧。认真对待。我有个很棒的高中图书管理员他导演了学校的话剧。我想进入戏剧界。我父母想让我有个退路。我最终成为了一名图书管理员,并获得了教育和通信学位。我有时间就去演戏。从表演经验中获得的好处对我的职业生涯非常有帮助!此外,在我很小的时候,我就想成为一名医生,但别人不鼓励我这样做。在图书馆学校,我发现医学图书馆和图书管理员真的走在使用技术的前沿,他们提供的信息支持了真正有价值的事情,比如病人护理和研究。 So that’s where I went. My career path has included hospital librarianship, establishing an education program, serving as the client project manager for the construction of the library, fund raising and development, head of services, head of technology, manager of major projects – great opportunities and learning experiences every one. And right now I think I spend a lot of time being a politician and promoter and in some cases, a darn fine actress!

你认为学术交流的发展方向是什么?你最感兴趣的新方向是什么?

这可能是我最简短的回答。我关注趋势。我读了文学作品。首先,我想说的是,对于健康科学图书馆来说,这与资源无关。新利18luck在线娱乐网我们的生存将取决于谁提供最好的服务和价值。对于我们的一些用户来说,这仍然意味着以传统的方式使用我们。对其他人来说,这意味着他们不在乎信息来自哪里,他们想要的时候就想要。我们的工作是提供尽可能少的障碍无缝访问。服务是我们的宗旨——我们不是资源。新利18luck在线娱乐网我们不是大楼。 We are information experts inserting value with that expertise whether it is in an electronic health record, at a community health, at the bench or at the bedside…format to be determined.

The scholarly communications package or container will change. I am not sure articles will continue to be in a “journal” package. Or that chapters will need to be in a book. Users want access directly to what they need. I am beginning to think the day of the big bibliographic databases is coming to an end. I think a lot about mobile devices, personalization, and objects. Scholarly information will be delivered on devices that will get smarter and smarter and smaller and smaller. A quote I read recently in the March issue of Fast Company said the iPhone “turned the smartphone concept from a businessperson’s badge into a cool tool for everyone.” Imagine if you will what that could mean for immediate access to scholarly communication. With so much information available, the personal web becomes a necessity. The self-designed organization of online content for individuals using a variety of tools will become reality. This enables self publication and information sharing. What could that mean for scholarly communication? Embedded graphics, data, and objects become extremely important. 

I am also curious what the expectations of the generation of users who grew up on Google will be? Please see this piece from ABC News:
“在谷歌上长大的医生们,版权之战迫在眉睫”。当前和尚未开发的社交网络工具将对学术交流产生什么影响?还有什么要考虑的吗?

你对那些对学术交流感兴趣的人有什么建议?你认为这个领域会出现什么样的新角色或机会?

好的,这将是我最短的答案,没有有用的具体建议。你需要对你所做的事情充满热情,相信它很重要。保持好奇心。提前想好。观看其他领域的趋势。这些趋势将推动机会。学术界通信领域不是因为娘娘腔或无法容忍歧义和变革的人。服用维生素并享用充足的睡眠。
