Facilities and technology
The Resource Room is staffed by the manager, Anne Fletcher, an information specialist with an MLIS degree. During the academic year, she has a student assistant. Fletcher can assist with literature review searches for research scientists and faculty working on grant proposals.
Catherine Shreve, the Perkins Librarian for Public Policy, holds reference hours from 2 to 4 p.m. on Wednesdays during the academic year to address reference questions for faculty, staff and students. She is assisted during that time period by Joel Herndon, Perkins Librarian for Data Services, who makes himself available through instant messaging for consultation on data issues.
Both Fletcher and Shreve are available for consultation on search strategies for the databases available through both the Perkins Library and the Duke University Medical Library.
