Abbey Heflin

Areas of Interest:

I am passionate about using data and data visualization to assist in making informed and strategic decisions within an organization. My background in business management and finance has helped me to find a niche in this area here at the Health Sciences Library. My role is to manage the libraries collections, metadata, discovery, and access to all scholarly resources. I also lead the libraries analytics and reporting and support our strategic initiatives by collecting, analyzing and presenting data.
