Anna M Levia

Reference and Instruction Librarian

Special Collections Processing Archivist

I work in three SUL locations.

I am a reference librarian at Green Library's Information Center, where I also conduct library workshops and provide research support for students in the Program in Writing and Rhetoric (PWR). 

At Bowes Art & Architecture Library, I provide circulation and reference assistance and am also responsible for selecting German language materials in the areas of Art and Architecture. 

In Special Collections, I process Hebrew, Yiddish and other archival materials.
