Getting to Know…Nadine Anderson, “Getting in on the Conversation” Webinar Panelist

Nadine Anderson is one of the panelists for our “Getting in on the Conversation: Implementing and Leveraging Embedded Librarianship” webinar next Tuesday, August 29, 12p.m. to 1p.m. EST. If you haven’t registered yet, go to, then read our interview below with Nadine. This is the last of the three interviews in our “Getting to know you” interview series with our three webinar panelists.

Q. 1. What is your job title?
Nadine: I am the Behavioral Sciences and Women’s & Gender Studies Librarian

Q. 2. Where do you work and how long have you worked there?
Nadine: I work at Mardigian Library, which is part of the University of Michigan, Dearborn campus. I have worked here for almost 4 years.

Q.3. What are your main job duties and how are you embedded?
Nadine: I do traditional collection development with both the Behavioral Sciences program and the Women’s & Gender Studies program. I am also physically embedded within the Behavioral Sciences program building three days a week, in my own office among the offices of Behavioral Sciences faculty. This better allows me to develop teaching partnerships and to provide research help to undergraduate and graduate students. I am embedded in courses and course management sites, as a thesis research consultant in graduate and honors programs, and am working with faculty and program leadership on several information literacy initiatives to strategically embed information literacy development into program curricula. Due to the highly interdisciplinary nature of the Women’s & Gender Studies program – many courses are taught by faculty in programs which do not fall under my responsibility – I am not able to be embedded in their program in the same way that I am in the Behavioral Sciences program.

Thanks Nadine!
