Research interests
In her position at Memorial, Ms. Goosney is involved in informational services at the QE II library. Here, she participates in the development, promotion and teaching of course-integrated instructional programs.

After graduation, she worked briefly at HRDC's Division of Learning and Literacy in Ottawa before gaining employment at Queens University as the Outreach Services Librarian for the Health Sciences Library.
