After a brief career in musical theater, Micki McIntyre entered the graduate library program at Columbia University, where she noticed a poster advertising free tuition to library employees. "There was a vacancy at the health sciences library, and that's how a theater major became a medical librarian." She's a medical librarian with flair. As reference librarian at the New York Academy of Medicine, McIntyre soon became adept at training people to use databases and the Internet, so the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ), the state's health sciences university, hired her to teach computer literacy and construct web pages. When UMDNJ officials decided to create a consumer health web site, McIntyre was the logical choice to design and manage it and to promote it to library and professional organizations and consumers. This article summarizes the accomplishments of Micki McIntyre, Health Sciences Library, University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey.
