Calling all library and information science students! Please join us for this virtual event to hear from three early-career science librarians about their work and how and why they became science librarians.
The Penn Libraries’ STEM Libraries are pleased to partner once again with the Drexel University Library and Archives Student Association (DULASA) to host the Third Annual Spotlight on STEM Librarianship panel discussion.
The goal of this event is to bring library and information science (LIS) students together to learn more about the dynamic field of STEM librarianship, with a focus on both physical and health sciences libraries, to encourage LIS students to consider a career in science libraries.
This year, the DULASA board decided to invite early-career STEM librarians as our panelists. They will share how they came to be science librarians and will describe the nature of their work. All three panelists are former Interns at Penn’s Biomedical, Dental, and Veterinary Libraries, two now working in academic health sciences libraries, and one working in a college science library. The event moderator is a former intern at Penn’s Chemistry Library.
Joyce Angelucci, Resident Librarian in the Sciences, Bryn Mawr College
Joyce Angelucci holds an undergraduate degree from Wharton in Business Administration and an MSLIS from Syracuse University. Her current role as the Resident Librarian in the Sciences at Bryn Mawr College is multifaceted. She is the coordinator of Collier Library which entails administrative as well as supervisory responsibilities, in addition to providing research and instructional support to the biology, chemistry, geology, math and physics community of faculty and students. Previously, she most recently interned at Penn’s Biomedical Library.
Liz Jenkins, Education and Information Services Librarian, Boston University Alumni Medical Library
Liz Jenkins is an Education and Information Services Librarian at the Boston University Alumni Medical Library. Previously, she interned at the Penn’s Biomedical and Veterinary Libraries. She graduated with her MSLIS from Drexel University in 2019 and has an MA in History from University College London and her BA from Bryn Mawr College. Outside of work, Liz enjoys baking sourdough bread and is a member of a local rowing team.
Carly Schanock, Health and Natural Sciences Librarian, University of South Dakota, Vermillion
Carly Schanock is currently a health and natural sciences librarian at the University of South Dakota in Vermillion. While interning at Penn’s Leon Levy Dental Library, she also worked as a project manager for the LEADS-4-NDP program at Drexel University’s Metadata Research Center. Carly also interned at the Historical Medical Library at the College of Physicians of Philadelphia during her MLIS program at Drexel. Before moving to Philadelphia, she attended DePaul University in Chicago for a BA in history and interned at the Chicago History Museum and the Busy Beaver Button Co. When not in a library, she can be found reading, creating digital art, and taking courses at Johns Hopkins for a master’s in education in digital age learning and educational technology.
Albert Lin, DULASA Board Member, event moderator
Albert Lin, a DULASA board member, graduated with his MLIS from Drexel University in June, 2020, and Doctor of Pharmacy from Palm Beach Atlantic University in 2012. He earned his undergraduate degree in biological sciences from the University of California, San Diego. Most recently, he interned at Penn’s Chemistry Library, and previously worked as a pharmacist before pursuing his MLIS degree.
We look forward to seeing many LIS students at this event! Anyone is welcome to attend.
