Ann Holman, Darnall Medical Library's Director, came to Bethesda in 2006, as the Stitt Library (NNMC) Systems Librarian. In her time here, she represented the library on the library integration team and in command meetings prior to moving the library to its current space. She acted as Reference Librarian and Acting Director before being named Director in October 2018.

Ms. Holman is responsible for day-to-day operations within the library, including budget, procurement, and supervision. If you have thoughts on improving library services, she would love to hear them.

Background and Education

She has a Masters in Library Science (MLS) from Emporia State University, Emporia KS, and a BS in Speech from Kansas State University, Manhattan KS. Prior to joining WRNMMC, she was librarian for the Naval Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technology Division for 13 years. During that time, she was involved with the Military Librarians Division of the Special Libraries Association.

How I can help
