Welcome Nicole Nawalaniec

Nicole Nawalaniec has joined the SLU Libraries Faculty as our Science Librarian.  Nicole studied biology and psychology at the University of Toronto, and her MLS is also from Toronto.  She’s settled into Launders and everyone in the Libraries (in the LIT division!) is very excited that she is here with us.

Of course, welcoming a new librarian aboard is a chance to pause and consider what librarians do.  Eric Ormsby’s article “Battle of the Book: The Research Library Today” published in the New Criterion is an elegant essay on how librarians should and do navigate print and digital publications, as is “Long Live Old Reference Services and New Technologies”written by  Bill Katz (published in Library Trends).  Libraries and Librarians are certainly the stuff of books, pliant rhetorical devices for all manner of curiosities–notable and provocative texts about libraries in the SLU Libraries collections include This Book is Overdue!  How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save Us All by Marilyn Johnson, The Library at Night by Alberto Manguel, Library: An Unquiet History by Matthew Battles, and The Story of Libraries: From the Invention of Writing to the Computer Age by Fred Lerner.
