Kathleen's role in the library
I am the liaison to the Materials Science & Engineering and Civil & Environmental Engineering departments of the School of Engineering. As part of that work, I maintain information guides on relevant topics such as the effect of natural disasters on buildings and civic infrastructure, nanotechnology, and water resources and assist faculty and students with their research.
I previously spent many years in the library of Hewlett-Packard Laboratories supporting groups working on nano- and computer science, test and measurement research, printing and imaging and photonics.
I currently present workshops for the PWR program, School of Engineering classes and the larger campus community on library research tools and processes. I'm always delighted to participate in class or study sessions for School of Engineering Faculty, TAs and student groups. Let me know if I can help you!
I am also one of the posters for the digital events board and events RSS feed for the Terman Engineering Library. Let us know if you have things you want to post there, or just email your event information to firstname.lastname@example.org
