Sarah's role in the library
I am the liaison for the Computer Science, Bioengineering and Mechanical Engineering Departments. I collect materials and provide research support for these departments and their related labs and research groups, in addition I maintain the library's collection of industry standards. I provide instruction support for PWR courses and teach workshops on various topics at the Engineering Library.

More about Sarah
Prior to becoming a librarian I worked in a number of different positions doing web UI design and programming as well as graphic design. As the child of three generations of Engineers, I have an appreciation for the profession and the types of resources required for success.
