Kristine Delaney

Kristine Delaney, MLS

Kris Delaney earned a bachelor’s degree in Art History from SUNY Plattsburgh and an MLS in Information Studies from Syracuse University. She began working for Crouse Hospital in 1990. Ms. Delaney enjoys combining her experience in museum archives to share Crouse’s rich heritage with the community and her library training to develop information services tailored to the special needs of physicians, nurses, patients and families.

Ellen Owens

Ellen Owens, MLS, RN

Ellen Owens graduated from St. Lawrence University with a B.S. in Biology. Her first job following graduation was teaching Earth Science – not Biology – at a small rural school in New York State. She was challenged by the Earth Science curriculum, as were her students, so they would often visit the school library to find answers to their many questions. That first job taught Ellen that it’s often more fun to explore the library, looking for an answer, than it is to already know the answer! With that discovery, she enrolled in Syracuse University’s iSchool for a Master’s in Library Science. Following graduation, she came to the Crouse Hospital Library, where she has taught informatics skills to nursing students. Surrounded by so many curious, creative and energetic nurses and nursing students, she enrolled in the Crouse Hospital School of Nursing and earned her RN degree. In May 2010 she received the Ann Wiles Life Long Learner Award.

Dawn Smolnycki

Dawn Smolnycki, CST

Dawn Smolnycki started working for Crouse Irving Hospital in 1969, when the hospital had its own on-the-job training program for Operating Room Techs. Because of this program, she earned her national certification as a Certified Surgical Technician and for 30 years worked in the hospital's operating room. In 1999, she joined the Crouse Library. Working as a Library Assistant, she enjoys helping Crouse Hospital School of Nursing students, staff, physicians, patients and their families.
