Faculty & Staff
All Library faculty possess an American Library Association (ALA) - accredited master’s degree in library and information studies as well as at least one additional subject or professional master’s degree and offer a wealth of experience in a variety of disciplines. Each year the Library faculty participate in conferences, webinars, and workshops to maintain their currency.
Many Library staff have worked at Andruss Library and other positions at the University for many years and therefore possess a wealth of institutional knowledge. Newer Library staff members have brought with them library-related skills acquired from previous positions. Staff members are encouraged to attend and participate in conferences and workshops, and they participate as schedules and opportunities allow.
The Library faculty and staff are led by the Director of Library Services, who has both academic credentials and professional Library management experience. The Director enhances her expertise through active participation in organizations focused on academic librarianship.
Faculty are active in both teaching and scholarship development activities. In addition to attending conferences and webinars specific to each librarian’s responsibilities, all Library faculty regularly attended Teaching Excellence Academy for Librarians (TEAL) workshops, meeting on average once a month for two academic years.
Staff have the opportunity to attend the annual state wide State System of Higher Education Libraries Council (SSHELCO) meeting. In addition, some attend national conferences, local workshops, and special vendor presentations relevant to their duties.
The Director of Library Services participates in professional development related to academic library management, trends in student learning, and information technology.
Library faculty, staff, and administrators have access to online resources that can help with technology and personal and profession development, such as Lynda.com and the PASSHE Academy.
In summer 2014 Andruss Library employed a Temporary Technical Services Librarians for four weeks to catalog backlogged materials; she came well qualified, with a master’s degree in library and information studies and works at Mansfield University’s Library during the academic year.
No other Adjunct Faculty were employed during this review period
