Abbey Heflin

My role at the Health Sciences Library is to manage the library's collections, metadata, discovery, and access to scholarly resources. I also lead the library's analytics and reporting and support our strategic initiatives by collecting, analyzing, and presenting data.

My current work is focused on looking to the future, and what the role of a library will be in a world of open scholarly resources and publishing.
