Information Resources Assistant Senior


I have been working at the U of M library since 1995. I started my library journey 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, withdraw duplicates and assist patrons in the reading room. I served full term on the Library Staff Forum Board from 2013 to 2015 and participated in 2015 Library Talent Circus. I have always been interested in reference and hope to one day staff the reference desk at Hatcher Graduate Library.


I'm originally from Poland and came to the Ann Arbor 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 my favorite hobby and I am a dj at an internet radio station where I play everything from punk to blues music. I enjoy crafts and currently I bead jewelry and learn how to paint abstract landscapes.
