Title: Librarian, Acquisition & Metadata Services
I joined KSL after receiving my M.S.I. from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor in 2014, but I have worked in libraries and archives for more than seven years. As a Metadata Librarian, I mostly work with the library catalog to ensure that our students and faculty can find the information they need as quickly as possible. My favorite part of my job is that it often brings me into contact with the old and fascinating items held by KSL's Special Collections. I welcome any questions about the library catalog, research in general, and the use of metadata in student projects. In my free time I enjoy hiking, exploring the Cleveland food scene, and maintaining my list of the best names I have come across while working with old books (current favorite: Thurlow Smoot).
The notation "Siegal" in the online catalog refers to the Aaron Garber Library of the Siegal College of Judaic Studies at 26500 Shaker Blvd. Cleveland OH 44122. The Aaron Garber Library is the academic library of the College and the central library of the Cleveland Jewish community. It includes 30,000 volumes, plus periodicals, language tapes, music and text CDs in English, Hebrew and Yiddish. The Library's electronic catalog is part of the online library system managed by Case Western Reserve University, and is included in OhioLINK, the statewide electronic academic catalog system. Online borrowing privileges are reserved for students registered at Siegal College. Community members are welcome to browse the catalog, visit the Garber Library and borrow materials.
