What Keeps My Job Interesting

A library is a growing organism.” - S. R. Ranganathan

At ACS since 2022

As the Senior Information Manager for the Early Cancer Detection Science group at the American Cancer Society (ACS), Rose Relevo, MLIS, MSMI, is responsible for locating and keeping up to date with research in the field of screening and early detection of cancer. Early detection of information is the key to keeping on top of potentially life-saving research in our field.

Research focus and accomplishments

For over a decade, I’ve located the evidence for systematic reviews as well as authored guidance on systematic review methodology. Many of the reviews I’ve been a part of were subsequently used in the publication of major clinical guidelines. I am excited to work with the screening guideline team to do important work that touches everybody.

Personal life 

I make my home in Portland, Oregon, which rests on traditional village sites of the Multnomah and many other tribes who made their homes along the Columbia River. My spouse and our child reside with our three cats and many plants. We are friends to the crows who live in the neighborhood.
