Northeast Georgia Health System
Tanisha Mills, MLIS, AHIP, serves as Medical Librarian at Northeast Georgia Health System where she offers reference/research support, instruction, library orientation, and public services to staff throughout the system. Most of her professional background is academic, comprised of leading information literacy instruction primarily for undergraduates and she has worked in a corporate setting, virtually supporting oncology clinicians and researchers. She also organized the first Human Library® in the U.S. Virgin Islands on her native island of St. Thomas for National Library Week 2010.
Tanisha’s investigation of librarian research capacity at teaching hospitals is a product of her participation in the Medical Library Association’s 2019-20 Research Training Institute. She was a 2019 co-recipient of the MLA Hospital Libraries Caucus Professional Development Grant and is serving a second term as the caucus’ community manager. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Emory University, and a Master of Library and Information Science degree with a medical concentration from the University of Pittsburgh through an IMLS-funded program for U.S. Virgin Islands residents.
