My name is Margaret Henderson and I’m a part-time biomedical librarian at Virginia Commonwealth University. I am very interested in the rise of informatics as a potential future for librarians, eScience, teaching, research, and collaboration. Actually, I’m interested in most anything in our field and I always have a hard time deciding on what to attend when I go to a meeting.
I completed a graduate Certificate in Biomedical Informatics from Oregon Health & Sciences University in the fall of 2012 (to update my 1986 MLIS). My course work, and my practicum project have lead me to collaborate with the Biomedical Informatics Core of the VCU Center for Clinical and Translational Research. I am working on the VCU set up of VIVO and hope to teach about EHR data analytics.
In the rest of my life I spend lots of time with my family. We all love travel. I am taxi service for my younger daughter who loves her horse more than her family. And my husband and I fund the artistic efforts of our older daughter who is in art school. My alternate blog is Life, Needlework, and Everything.
