Malgorzata's role in the library
I am responsible for managing the quality of our interactions with faculty and students to support their research needs; we provide reference services in person, through chat, e-mail or on the phone. I also manage the instruction program, through which we lead information literacy workshops for all students in the Program in Writing and Rhetoric (PWR) as well as a variety of other workshops by request. I oversee our Interlibrary Services unit, which locates material for research needs at partner institutions and reciprocates by lending our resources.
In addition to online resources, the Information Center has a collection of over 22,000 print reference sources, over 6,000 current titles of journals and magazines and about 150 newspapers from many countries. I oversee the management of these collections to make them accessible for your use.

I attend the biannual conference, Loex of the West, which focuses on instruction, and I also enjoy attending the American College of Research Libraries conference, either physically or virtually. I have been asked to speak at conferences or educational institutions in California, New York and Sweden. My focus is information fluency.
More about Malgorzata

After obtaining my library degree, I spent two years in Poland on a Fulbright Grant. I bring project management experience from my six years of expertise as Production Manager at an ad agency.
