Wondering who’s the new face in Kresge? It’s Lora Leligdon, who began work in Kresge on Monday as Physical Sciences Librarian with liaison responsibility to the Physics and Astronomy department.
Lora joins us from the University of New Mexico Library in Albuquerque, where she was the Engineering Research Librarian since early 2012. Before moving to New Mexico, she worked as a Reference Librarian at Washington State University in Vancouver. She has an undergraduate degree in chemical engineering from Iowa State, as well as an M.S.L.S from Emporia State University. Before going into librarianship, Lora worked for several years for engineering firms in Portland, Oregon and in Aurora, Illinois, near Chicago. Lora brings experience and insight into the characteristics and research needs of scientists and engineers, and has particular interests in information literacy in the workplace, communication and relationship building with faculty, and data management.
We’re very excited to have her join our staff. Please stop by and say hi to her on your way through Kresge!
P.S. I am now the official subject librarian and liaison to Mathematics and Computer Science. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!
