The Health Sciences Libraries’ Jonathan Koffel was officially awarded continuous appointment and promotion to associate librarian at the Board of Regents meeting in May.

As Clinical Information Librarian at the Health Sciences Libraries, Koffel has developed partnerships with faculty and students in key Medical School departments during his tenure at the University that serve as a model for how health science librarians can support teaching, learning, and research in academic medicine.

In addition to his exemplary job performance, Koffel has built a strong record of significant service to the Libraries and University as well as high-quality professional contributions through presentations and publications, and through developing and teaching continuing education courses for health science librarians.

Of note is his recent research on the benefits of librarian involvement in the development of systematic reviews. His study found that the systematic reviews that included librarian involvement were more likely to use many of the core recommended search strategies. His research findings have been published in the latest issue of PLoS ONE.
