Anne K. Seymour, MSIS

Anne K. Seymour, MS, is the Associate Director for Information Services at the Biomedical Library of the University of Pennsylvania. The Biomedical Library serves the Perelman School of Medicine, School of Nursing, University of Pennsylvania Health System (UPHS) and life sciences community at Penn.  Her responsibilities include oversight of research and literature review services for this community as well as library support of evidence-based practice curricula in the schools of medicine and nursing and in graduate medical education at the UPHS. Ms. Seymour has applied her expertise in evidence-based practice, health sciences information resources and informatics to the global health arena and to Penn’s global health partnerships in Botswana and Guatemala.  Under Dr. Umscheid’s and Ms. Seymour’s leadership, a collaboration between the Biomedical Library and CEP was established in 2006. Librarians serve as active members of the CEP team and conduct systematic reviews, develop evidence-based guidelines and provide training in evidence-based literature search methods. The collaboration continues and has the full support of the Penn Libraries. In addition to support of CEP, librarians regularly consult with faculty on complex research projects and systematic reviews.  Ms. Seymour has led efforts to bring evidence-based literature search training to programs at the University of Pennsylvania. Biomedical librarians teach development of appropriate questions, evidence-based searching skills and appraisal of the literature in curriculum integrated sessions for the Perelman School of Medicine, School of Nursing, and UPHS residency programs.
