Personal Statement

I am continually looking for new information sources and tools to enhance research, education, and healthcare. Please don’t hesitate to contact me. Information mastery skills are developed, not taught, so let’s get started. In my free time, I like to take photographs, paddle a canoe, and spend time with my family.


Dan Wilson has a BA in History from Bloomsburg State College (now Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania) and a Master of Library Sciences degree from the State University of New York (SUNY) Geneseo.

Dan’s role is to develop information mastery skills in the UVA School of Nursing.  He does this through orientations, specialized instruction, consultations, participating on research teams, and maintaining the Library Resources for the School of Nursing.

In addition to being the School of Nursing librarian, Dan is the Associate Director for Collections & Library Services at the UVA Claude Moore Health Sciences Library and coordinator for the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM) National Emergency Preparedness & Response Initiative.  In his coordinator role, he promotes disaster preparedness in our nation’s libraries through facilitating workshops and summit meetings designed to improve library disaster readiness and creating partnerships between librarians and emergency planners.
