About

I have been working at the U of M library since 1995.  I started my library career transliterating Cyrillic serial titles as a student employee.  My first library job was at Taubman Interlibrary Loan.  After that I worked in various Technical Services units for 10 years.  At Buhr I have been since 2008.  About 50 percent of my job is technical, the rest is at the circulation desk in the reading room.  I process books and serials for long term storage, retrieve books requests for patrons and withdraw duplicates.  I also supervise students and oversee the building fire and security system during manager's absence.  I serve on the Library Staff Forum Board.  

Background

I'm originally from Poland and came to the United States at the age of 16.  I graduated from the University of Michigan Residential College and received a BA degree in Russian Language and Literature.  In college I studied variety of subjects like Russian literature, history, philosophy, French, film and dance.  Music is still my favorite hobby and  I am a dj at three internet radio stations.
