Founding director of OUWB’s medical library steps down from ‘dream job’
OUWB’s founding medical library director is stepping down in August — having successfully established a system sure to be integral in the education of generations of future physicians.
Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine Medical Library Founding Director Nancy Bulgarelli, MSLS, will continue to serve Oakland University as a faculty member and frontline librarian at OU’s Kresge Library.
Bulgarelli, who joined OUWB as medical library director before the school welcomed its first class in 2011, says she’s excited about the change.
It will be the biggest career change for her since she left Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit for what was then Michigan’s first new medical school in 50 years.
“Within the first 30 minutes of the interview (at OUWB), I wanted the job so bad I could taste it,” she says. “(The interview panel) had such a compelling vision and they were so excited about building something new.”
