Meet Your Lane Library Staff: Anu Moorthy

Every month, we are spotlighting an amazing member of our library staff. This month meet Anu Moorthy, Electronic Resources Librarian. 

What do you do at the library?

I am the new electronic resources librarian, and my primary role is to work with vendors and electronic resources. I will lead and administer day-to-day operations in electronic resource management by working closely with colleagues in Acquisitions, Cataloging, Information Technology, Collection Development, Liaison Librarians, and external vendors.

What did you do before coming to Lane Library?

I was the electronic resources librarian at the Georgia Tech Library in Atlanta, GA, and was the lead for electronic resource management. Previously, I worked at the Duke University Medical Library and Archives as the Associate Director of Content and Discovery. 

What are you most excited about in your new role?

I am very excited to learn about Lane’s electronic resources and explore better user experience options! I am most excited to come back to the medical library universe! I have always enjoyed working on medical journals and other medical library resources. 

How long have you worked at Lane?

Two weeks

What do you do in your spare time?

I like to read, listen to music (Bollywood, classical, international), and experiment with new kitchen recipes.

Do you prefer . . .

Coffee or tea?  Definitely strong coffee, occasionally I crave a masala chai

Cats or dogs?  Like to look at both, do not have pets

Candy or cake? Candy

Salty or sweet?  Savories 

Print or digital books? Although I prefer a print book, since the pandemic, I have mostly been reading on my Kindle and listening to audiobooks; the only print book that I read and listened to in the last 3 years was the Covenants of Water. 

Nonfiction or fiction? I read fiction and non-fiction at the same time. I’m currently reading Laughing without an Accent, Firoozeh Dumas, and The Book of Lost Names by Kristin Harmel

Summer or winter? Mild winters are my favorite.
