Barrie is the Bioinformatics Librarian at the Health Sciences Library and Clinical Assistant Professor at the UNC School of Information and Library Science (SILS). She has a background in information services, online resources and web systems development, and most recently managed HSL's Application Development Services Department.
With the goal of providing more support and service to UNC's growing research in the field of bioinformatics, the Health Sciences Library established the Bioinformatics Librarian role as a permanent liaison position in 2007. In this role Barrie supports library services for the bioinformatics decribed on the Bioinformatics@HSL page. and coordinates videoconferencing and visualization services of the HSL-RENCI Collaboration Center.
Barrie is active in the American Society for Information Science & Technology and the American Medical Informatics Association. She held an internship at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences Library before coming to the UNC Health Sciences Library in 1995.
