Join Terri Robinson, Ph.D., NEOMED’s executive director of Academic and Library Services, in celebrating the promotion of Joanne Agunday (pronounced A-GUN-day) and arrival of Todd Wallwork, M.L.I.S., both in April.
Familiar face, new role
Joanne Agunday was promoted from educational data coordinator to the role of assistant director of testing services.
Agunday began her career at NEOMED as an on-call assessment assistant, then later transitioned to a part-time assessment assistant.
Here’s how Dr. Robinson describes Agunday’s new role in Academic Affairs:
“Joanne oversees all exam administration, orients all students and proctors on exams along with her staff and collaborates with college staff, including curriculum coordinators and faculty to administer exams to pharmacy and medicine students. She is a subject-matter expert with testing software.”
New technology systems librarian
Wallwork joined NEOMED as its new technology systems librarian.
Prior to joining NEOMED, Wallwork worked at the University of Alabama Libraries, the Rowan-Cabarrus Community College Library in North Carolina, and Tennessee State Library and Archives.
In his new role, Wallwork manages the integrated library systems and the library services platform. He approves all the access and authorizations for both students, faculty who have appointments on and off campus and hospital affiliates; educates NEOMED stakeholders on those platforms; and implements new ways to use technology.
Dr. Robinson describes the difference between the positions of Wallwork and Simon Robins, NEOMED’s reference librarian.
“Simon’s and Todd’s positions are quite separate, but very dependent upon each other. As a reference librarian, Simon focuses on the literature and educational resource content that is utilized by students, faculty and researchers. Todd basically is the bridge to that to make sure students, faculty and researchers have access to that content,” says Dr. Robinson.
