|Meet Tom Harrod, Reference/Instructional Librarian!|
Himmelfarb Library is pleased to welcome Tom Harrod to its staff. Tom came to Himmelfarb from the University of Maryland, College Park where he was a reference librarian and worked extensively with the biology, cell biology, and public health departments. Tom's prior educational background includes a MS degree in Basic Medical Sciences with a focus on biology from the University of Alabama, Birmingham and a MS degree in Library and Information Sciences from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana.
Tom's career path initially led him toward work as a laboratory scientist, until he switched gears and decided to apply his interest and knowledge of science to a library career. Tom is a reference librarian at Himmelfarb Library and will act as a liaison between the library and the departments of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, Neurology, and Neurological Surgery. Tom will also work with first year medical students as their librarian-tutor in the Problem-Centered Learning class, and provide instruction and research assistance to GWUMC faculty, students, and staff.
In his spare time, Tom likes to read, watch movies and play chess - albeit not as well as he would like.
