Biomedical Library Welcomes New Librarian!

Hi! I’m Monica Garcia, the newest Health and Life Sciences Librarian at the Louise M. Darling Biomedical Library. I am your liaison to the Fielding School of Public Health and the School of Nursing.

I graduated with a Master’s in Library and Information Science and a Master of Arts in Latin American Studies at UCLA last June. In school, I wrote papers on access to health, women’s empowerment, and technological innovation in medicine and communications. I also served as chair of the UCLA Communications Board. I got my B.A. from UCLA in Global Studies, with a minor in Public Affairs. Apparently, I can’t get enough of UCLA: I am currently working toward a marketing certificate, with a concentration on social media and web analytics, at UCLA Extension.

Prior to the Biomedical Library, I worked at the UCLA Law Library, for Dr. Christine Borgman , and at the National Immigration Law Center. I’ve interned at the Coalition for Humane Immigrant’s Rights of Los Angeles, UCLA Office of Intellectual Property, CNN, and Hispanas Organized for Political Equality.

I look forward to meeting you! Please contact me at mgarcia[at]library[dot]edu with any questions.
