Library Operations Manager

Position title
Library Operations Manager
Libraries department
Agriculture, Biological, & Environmental Science


I manage the operations of the three libraries on the University of Minnesota's Saint Paul campus: Magrath Library, the Natural Resources Library (featuring a turtle named Leonard), and the Veterinary Medical Library. I graduated with a B.A. in English from the University of Connecticut, studying with Charles Boer, and later worked with Maurice Meisner and Alfred W. McCoy as a graduate student in Asian history at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I've had a varied career at the University of Minnesota Libraries, working with interlibrary loan, course reserves, document delivery, instruction, and managing several service desks. I've been operations manager at the St. Paul campus libraries since 2012. My staff and I are here to help you with your research, learning, and just getting the most out of the libraries.
