Emily Vorhies (’12) joins EPA Library as Electronic Resources Librarian

July 20, 2016

Emily Vorhies (MSLS ’12), alumna of the UNC School Information and Library Science (SILS), recently joined the EPA-RTP Library as the Electronic Resources Librarian. In this position, will work closely with the EPA-RTP Library Director and EPA Federal Project Officer on all facets of serials and electronic resource management including receipt, licensing, processing, and management activities. She will supervise and mentor interns in the Serials Rotation and she will work with both library staff and patrons to increase awareness of trends in scholarly communication, copyright, and issues in scientific publishing.

After graduating from SILS in 2012, Vorhies moved back to Missouri and worked part-time in a law library in St. Louis. In March of 2013, she returned to North Carolina and began working as the Technical Services Librarian at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) Library in RTP.

“It shares a campus with the EPA, so I am very excited to not only be at the EPA Library, but also to be able to continue enjoying the beautiful Discovery Lake and all of the wildlife on campus,” Vorhies said. “I am also excited to get to know my new coworkers and the incoming interns at EPA, and start supporting the important research done here.”
