Course Reserve Coordinator
Danika has worked with the U of M Libraries since January 2010. As course reserve coordinator, she works with instructors to make course materials available to students in an easily accessible format. The role allows her to partner on innovative cross-unit and cross-campus projects, such as the Digital Course Pack Project, to help make course content more affordable and to help make sharing course content easier to accomplish.
Danika also staffs the 1st floor service desk at Wilson Library and is invested in providing a welcoming and engaging environment for library users. As an extension of that interest, she's had the opportunity to create exhibits and interactive displays along with other like-minded peers as part of the From Our Collections team.
