Lynn Whitener, MSLS, DrPH


Dr. Whitener served as the Director of Library Services for the Cecil G. Sheps Center for Health Services Research at UNC-Chapel Hill, and was the librarian for the RTI-UNC EPC for over 20 years. She continues to provide information services to the National Library of Medicine and AcademyHealth in her role as President of Information Packaging. She has supported the RTI-UNC EPC on previous systematic reviews for the USPSTF, specifically on screening for speech and language, osteoporosis, menopausal hormone therapy, child maltreatment, and Vitamin D. She is PI on a project funded by the National Library of Medicine on HSRR, a searchable database of information about research datasets, instruments/indices, and software. Fun fact: her first office was located directly next to Dr. Cecil G. Sheps.
