New Library & Knowledge Service Lead
Your Library & Knowledge Service (LKS) has a new LKS Lead, Jackie Pearce. Jackie joined WUTH from the start of the year. Jackie says “I am delighted to be joining the established, professional LKS and Medical Education team and hope to meet many WUTH staff and students soon.
For the past 26 years, I have worked in academic libraries, supporting students, academics and researchers at the University of Liverpool (20 years) and Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine (LSTM).
The LKS Lead post presents me with an opportunity to broaden my experience within the LKS field as well as utilise my past experience to develop and tailor the current and future service provision to best meet the requirements of all stakeholder Trust’s staff and students on placement.
At a time when the strains on NHS staff are so prevalent, one of the key messages I intend to disseminate as soon as possible, is the ‘gift of time[i]’ we can offer healthcare professionals by taking the ‘heavy lifting’ out of getting evidence into practice. “
