Kathleen's role in the library
I am the liaison to the Materials Science & Engineering and Civil & Environmental Engineering departments of the School of Engineering. As part of that work, I maintain information guides on relevant topics such as the effect of natural disasters on buildings and civic infrastructure, nanotechnology, and water resources and assist faculty and students with their research.
I present workshops for the PWR program, School of Engineering classes and the larger campus community on library research tools and processes. I'm always delighted to participate in class or study sessions for School of Engineering Faculty, TAs and student groups. Let me know if I can help you!
I maintain the digital events board and events RSS feed for the Terman Engineering Library.
