Library Bulletin Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center Library -- New Orleans
Welcome Back Debbie!
Debbie Sibley may be familiar to some of you, she first worked for LSUMC'S Library from 1978-1981, although her surname was Leggett then. We are pleased to have her back in New Orleans as the Associate Director and acting Head of Public Services for the Isché Library.
Debbie grew up in Jefferson Parish, where her parents still reside. She graduated from the Northeast Louisiana University (now the University of Louisiana at Monroe) with an Master of Education. She later received her Master of Library Science from LSU Baton Rouge. Since then she has worked in various libraries in many capacities.
Debbie was most recently the Deputy University Librarian at Thomas Jefferson University, Scott Memorial Library, Philadelphia, PA. She has also been employed the University of Massachusetts Medical School Library in Worcester as Deputy Director before becoming the Associate Director of the National Network of Libraries of Medicine, New England Region in the same institution. She worked in Shreveport at both the LSUMC library and the public library. Throughout her career Debbie has worked in almost every department in the library from Circulation to Interlibrary Loan to Administration.
Debbie's husband, Gary, is currently working and living in New Jersey but will hopefully join her next year in their new house. She has a stepson, Scott, who is a chef in Boston. Her brother lives in Slidell and she also has a sister who lives in St. Louis.
Unlike most people, Debbie says that one of her favorite things about New Orleans is the warm, humid weather. In addition to spending time with her family Debbie likes to garden, and of course, read. But before you start thinking of her as a homebody you should also know that she also enjoys scuba diving and has a pilot's license.
We are happy to have Debbie back at LSUHSC and look forward to her guidance in what is sure to be an exciting future for New Orleans and the LSU Health Science Center Libraries.
