Malgorzata's role in the library

I am responsible for expanding and improving Stanford University Libraries’ information delivery program and processes. Information Delivery includes physical and electronic delivery of Stanford University Libraries' content in all formats to members of the Stanford community and to appropriate external patrons. I oversee our Interlibrary Services unit (which locates material for research needs at partner institutions and reciprocates by lending our resources) and our current periodicals collection. I also participate as part of the reference and instruction teams.
