I am very happy to announce that our new Science Data Librarian will begin working at Middlebury on Monday, August 6. Wendy Shook served most recently as a volunteer librarian at the Hawai’i Academy of Arts and Science. Prior to this position, she was a Data Analysis Specialist at the Association of Universities for Research in Astronomy – Gemini Observatory. She holds a Master of Information Studies from Charles Sturt University in Australia (2011), and a Bachelor of Science, Physics Cooperative Program, from University of Victoria (1996).
Wendy will be the LIS Liaison to most of the sciences, and her office will be at the Armstrong Library. Look for her next month! We’ll be touring all of LIS (and beyond!), so say hello when you see us.
