This spring the Library welcomed First Year Experience Librarians Rachel Landis and Tamara Uhaze. Their goal is to help new Northeastern students with their transition to college research. They also plan events for first-year students to network with one another and familiarize themselves with the library and all it has to offer. Some events they are planning for this fall include a movie screening and trivia night. Keep an eye out for them on the library calendar!
Rachel graduated with her MLIS from Drexel University and previously worked in the libraries at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Virginia. In her free time, you’ll find Rachel reading thrillers, trying new restaurants around Boston, or hanging out with her two-year-old Beagle-mix, Leo. Tamara received her MLS from Texas Woman’s University and previously worked at The College of New Jersey as a librarian. Tamara spends her time gardening, watching the latest movies, and checking out the museums in Boston.
Be sure to find the library’s table at Fall Fest on Tuesday September 6th. Rachel and Tamara will be there to answer your questions about the library and to facilitate a fun game where you have the chance to win a gift card. During Welcome Week, the library is also offering tours on Wednesday September 7th and Thursday September 8th departing at 1 and 1:30 p.m. from the lobby of Snell Library.
