Meet the Mansfield – Kate Zoellner

17 September 2013 by sarah.weatherby

What is your name and work title?

Kate Zoellner, Associate Professor, Education, Human Sciences and Psychology Librarian, Assessment Coordinator

What do you do in the library?

I teach and develop online materials about research processes and resources (e.g., conducting a literature review, searching specialized databases) to further the research/teaching/learning of UM students/faculty/staff, particularly for members of the College of Education and Human Sciences and the Psychology Department. I purchase materials in those subject areas for the library collection, too. I also work at the library’s Reference Desk, organize research workshops, and coordinate the library’s high school outreach. In terms of assessment I chair the library’s Assessment Committee which works to imbed and foster data-informed decision-making to improve library services, implement and analyze surveys (e.g., LibQUAL), and develop reports for accreditation and other purposes. I serve on other library and university committees. And I conduct research on assessment in libraries and on faculty and graduate student work and information seeking practices.

I’m currently working on a project to highlight graduate students’ research and library expertise and experiences. (If you are a graduate student reading this and would like to contribute and be recognized I’d be thrilled to talk with you – do contact me!)

What are you watching/reading/listening to right now?

I’m reading (and admiring the stunning prints in) Someday is Now: The Art of Corita Kent edited by Ian Berry and Michael Dunn. And I’m listening to the 20th anniversary edition of Los Lobos’ album Kiko.
