Emma Florio, Special Collections Library Assistant, MLIS

Emma Florio joined Galter Library at the beginning of December as our new Special Collections Library Assistant. Emma will be working closely with the Special Collections Librarian to maintain Galter’s rare and unique collections and enhance workflows related to preservation and archival research. She is excited to apply her skill set to the wide range of dynamic tasks that support the Special Collections department and will hit the ground running on Galter’s upcoming exhibits.  

Emma received an MLIS in Archives Management from Simmons College in Boston and has worked in a variety of institutions, including the Boston Public Library and the Newberry Library. She comes to Galter from the Chicago History Museum where she was working to make archival collections, including manuscripts and materials from the Chicago Sun Times, more accessible to the public. We are thrilled to have Emma on board and look forward to the way her expertise will further Galter’s ability to provide historical reference support to the Northwestern Community. Please help us welcome Emma to the Galter team!

Denise Nunes, Clinical Informationist, MS RN

Denise Nunes joined us in December as our new Clinical Informationist and will be working alongside our Reference and Information Services team. Denise will offer direct support to clinical teams on rounds and other focused projects to ensure that Feinberg students, residents, and clinicians have the medical research necessary to practice in an array of clinical environments. She is most looking forward to the way that her role supports medical professionals while bridging gaps and combining research, teaching and clinical practice as a structure to provide excellent patient care.  

Denise received her MS in Nursing from DePaul University and is a Registered Nurse with backgrounds in Clinical Research and Risk Management. She has served as a Visiting Professor of Nursing at Chamberlin University and is currently finishing her MLIS from Chicago State University. As a part of her MLIS, Denise has started a podcast highlighting published theses and dissertations of diverse disciplines exploring the ideas and impact of interdisciplinary collaborations. We are delighted to welcome Denise and are excited for the way her experience and expertise will cultivate opportunities for integrated support across the Feinberg community. Please help us welcome Denise to the Galter team!
