Carlin Otto

Library Specialist for Course Reserves and Gift Processing

Routinely, I service the circulation desk and take care of building closure.

As needed, I process:

  • new gifts
  • new shelf-ready items
  • newly purchased publications
  • course reserves for all Earth Sciences Department courses

Monthly, I assist the librarians in ordering and processing state governmental publications.

I search for missing/lost items.
