Archivist and Associate Librarian
Indiana University South Bend
I’m the Archivist at Indiana University South Bend, the only comprehensive public university in North Central Indiana and the third largest campus in the IU system (of eight campuses).
IUSB has 8,590 students.
I’m a Lone Arranger – and split my duties as Archivist for the campus between being one of ten librarians and teaching a required information literacy course each semester.
For me, service is not only something that my particular position requires – but I love it!
I feel drawn to service because it allows me to ‘give back’ to my workplace, my campus, students, my community.
And it helps me to connect with fellow archivists, librarians, other faculty members, staff, students, and community members – both local and beyond.
