About me - Isla Kuhn!

Initially a very reluctant librarian, I’ve now enjoyed over 10 years as a Medical Librarian, and have to face facts: I really enjoy what I do!

Graduating from Strathclyde University with a masters in library and information science, and having stints in Oxford (then the Cairns Library) and Leicester (setting up an outreach service from primary care and mental healthcare staff), I became Reader Services Librarian in University of Cambridge Medical Library in 2004. This involves supporting NHS staff, principally at Addenbrooke’s, as well as staff and students at University of Cambridge.
In 2012 I moved into the position of Deputy Medical Librarian, and in 2014 became Medical Librarian.

I  twitter, am LinkedIn and have contributed to the CPD23 programme, and the 12 Things programme for NHS library staff in the East of England. I am about to be involved in CamDoT: 10 Days of Twitter for University of Cambridge libraries. More details about publications and presentations are available.

  1. Isla,

    Love the name of your blog. It’s the first 23cpd blog I’ve looked at as part 1 of 23cpd which I just stumbled on earlier this week. Thus my lagging a bit. Just barely have a blog up now for the very first time. I work in a medical library in a teaching hospital in the United States.
