Nursing Librarian

Janene Batten, Reference Librarian for the Yale School of Nursing, spends time both at the School and in the Medical Library. Janene assists students, faculty, and staff with information questions, training needs and research assistance.

In addition to Janene’s services, the Medical Library is staffed by professional librarians who are available to answer questions and help in the use any of the resources available. There are also clerical and technical people who provide services such as acquiring and organizing collections, guiding users, lending or photocopying materials, and obtaining from other libraries those items that the Library does not own.
