Sherry Morgan, PhD, MLS, RN

Dr. Morgan is a biomedical library liaison to the Penn Medicine Center for Evidence-based Practice, a Liaison Librarian to faculty, students and staff of the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing, and a Bibliographer for the University of Pennsylvania Biomedical Library who evaluates and collects resources relating to nursing, bioethics, and complementary and alternative health. Dr. Morgan also teaches search techniques for systematic reviews and offers consultations to students and faculty in the School of Medicine systematic reviews and critical appraisal courses, and in the capstone and methods courses of the Master of Public Health (MPH) program.  She also offers educational sessions and consultations on systematic searching of health and social sciences resources to advanced practice nurses and other clinicians throughout the University of Pennsylvania Health System.  She served for three years on one of the University of Pennsylvania’s Institutional Review Boards and has published in nursing and medical journals.  Before coming to Penn, Dr. Morgan directed a nursing, gerontology, and health care management library at Hartford Hospital in Connecticut.  Her academic background and experiences span hospital and community nursing (RN and BSNEd, Wilkes University), library & information studies (MLS, concentration in gerontology, Syracuse University with an information internship at the National Cancer Institute), and medical/psychological anthropology (PhD, University of Pennsylvania).  Her research interests include ethical issues relating to family caregivers, intellectually disabled people, Haitian immigrants, and the elderly.  Her interest in Haitian immigrants prompted her to teach English as a Second Language and computer-related courses to a Haitian population in North Philadelphia.  Her interest in the health of intellectually disabled people and their caregivers resulted in her doctoral dissertation (2010), entitled:  Living For Two:  Family Caregivers’ Stories of Life With Adults Who Have Intellectual Disabilities.
