Kristina M. DeShazo

  • Assistant Professor, Library
  • Director of Collection Management, Library


As Director of Collection Management my job is to provide leadership, vision and strategic direction for the OHSU Library in the development and management of the library's collections and budget. This is accomplished through environmental scans and assessment of the collection needs of the OHSU community in conjunction with librarians and through regular assessment of the library's collections to ensure they fulfill the needs of the OHSU community.

I oversee and manage the collection budget and annual capital budget requests for collections which includes regular review of resources with the librarians to ensure a balanced mix of content for the OHSU community.
