Please welcome our Visiting Teaching and Learning Librarians Jillian Sandy and William Crowell!
About Jillian Sandy
As an Ohioan, I am excited to be part of the St. Mary’s community and enjoy your pleasant East Coast weather (ha)! So far, he campus has been a great environment for me as someone who takes joy in the natural landscape and swings. Before SMCM, I worked in several public libraries in the Dayton area, then made the transition to academic libraries at the University of Dayton. There, I discovered how much I enjoy working and learning with students at the college level. Here at SMCM, I am a Visiting Teaching & Learning Librarian, and will focus much of my time and energy on information literacy instruction for
Core classes. I also serve as the liaison for the departments of Anthropology, Educational Studies, Psychology, and Sociology. I welcome questions about my cat, Bertha Mason!
