Current Title: Teacher Librarian, Macintosh Library
Academic Background: B.A. Hons (University of King’s College), M.L.I.S. (Dalhousie University)
Work Experience: I’ve worked as a librarian in schools and colleges in Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, Cyprus, Switzerland, Japan and the United States.
Biography: As the Upper School Teacher Librarian I’m responsible for research instruction and support for students in the Middle Years and Diploma Programmes, and for faculty regarding their professional learning interests. I manage the Macintosh Library facility and I develop library collections to support the learning and general reading interests of our Upper School community (a wonderfully diverse and engaging task!) The questions and curiosity of the students and colleagues I work with at UCC make my work as a librarian routinely rewarding. I grew up in Europe and in Canada, and I’ve traveled widely. I’m happy to be settled in Toronto with my husband and daughter, although I’m always ready for a trip back home to Nova Scotia!
Current Title: Technical Services Librarian, Macintosh Library
Academic Background: B.A. History (University of Western Ontario), M.L.I.S. (University of Western Ontario)
Work Experience: Previous to starting at UCC, I worked in corporate libraries at PwC, Cineplex, and Spin Master.
Biography: I provide reference and cataloguing services to the library along with support for our various databases, libguides and catalogues. I love coming to work every day and having the opportunity to support the boys in their research and love of reading! Outside of work I practice yoga, enjoy travelling, and am a nap enthusiast.
