We are pleased to welcome our new data librarian, Julie Marcoux, to the Dalhousie Libraries.
Julie comes to Dalhousie from the Université de Moncton, where she served as the reference, data and geospatial data Librarian. In that role, she particularly enjoyed having the opportunity to help the nursing, psychology and science students and professors with their research, and helping anyone in the uMoncton community find and access data and statistics.
Julie is especially proud of her Excel expertise which has led to several invitations to present at various Data Liberation Initiative (DLI) regional workshops: Atlantic Canada, West Canada, Québec, and Ontario. She was the DLI representative for uMoncton, and recently became one of two Atlantic DLI Regional Training Co-ordinators.
Julie completed her Bachelor in Information Management with Université de Moncton in 2009, and graduated in 2011 from the University of Ottawa’s bilingual Master of Information Studies.
Julie’s main responsibilities at Dalhousie will be to serve as liaison to the Department of Psychology & Neuroscience and to help students, professors and researchers on all campuses with their data and statistics questions.
Some of her first projects will include establishing a network of support for data questions across all Dalhousie libraries, helping researchers transition from Equinox to SDA, joining Dal’s Research Data Management team, and attending some excellent geospatial software training by colleagues from the GISciences Centre.
Julie can be reached by email at Julie.firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 902-494-3189
Welcome Julie – We are all looking forward to working with you!
