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.
I am currently serving as part of the Stanford University Library's Concierge Project Advisory Group (CPAG), the Chat Reference Task Force, and heading the Reference Management Tools Group.
More about Malgorzata
Prior to joining the Information Center, I spent ten years working with the Curator for Slavic and East European Collections, utlizing some of my foreign language skills. 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.
