It’s time for the third in our Featured Librarian series!
This week I spoke to Kate Burke, a reference and student experience librarian at the St Paul campus. You’ll see her in a wide variety of classes as well as heading up many of the fun activities that happen around the libraries. Here is what she had to say:
- What departments are you a liaison for?
I am responsible for Art History, Philosophy, Air Force ROTC, Mathematics, Physics, Geography, and Geographic Information Systems and Computer and Information Sciences.
- What resource – in your topic area – do you think is the coolest?
I love ARTstor
- What’s one cool thing that resource can do?
ARTstor can be used by all students to help them create awesome presentation using fabulous artwork
Getting to know Kate…
