Getting to Know…Nadine Anderson

Q. 1. What is your job title?

Nadine: Behavioral Sciences Librarian

Q. 2. Where do you work and how long have you worked there?

Nadine: At the University of Michigan-Dearborn, since January 2014.

Q.3. What are your main job duties and how are you embedded?

Nadine: I am the subject librarian for the Behavioral Sciences, which mainly involves teaching and providing research help to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as some collection development work. I am embedded in the Behavioral Sciences department 3 or 4 days a week (in my own office among other faculty offices), in courses and course management sites, as a thesis research consultant in their graduate and honors programs, and am working with faculty and the department on several information literacy initiatives to strategically embed information literacy development into their non-scaffolded undergraduate program curricula.

Q.4. How did you get your job?

Nadine: I applied for a traditional Subject Liaison position that turned out in the campus interview to be an Embedded Librarian position! I convinced both the library and the Behavioral Sciences department that I’d be a good fit for their communities.
