Mei Wang 王玫
I have worked for the U-M Libraries since 2000. I started with Monograph and Serial Acquisitions at Taubman Medical Library, and then worked at Technical Services Division. I joined the Asia Library in the summer of 2007.
I have a B.A. in English Language and Literature from Anhui Normal University in China and taught English upon graduation. Prior to my arrival in the U.S., I worked as a school-district coordinator for instructional support. I received a Master's degree in Library and Information Sciences from Wayne State University in 2009. One year after that, I obtained Certificate of "Metadata for Digital Collection" from University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee, School of Information Studies Professional Development Institute. I've been a member of Chinese American Librarian Association since 2007 and served on various committees. I am also affiliated with Association for Asian Studies and Council on East Asian Libraries.
My role at the Asia Library includes original and complex copy cataloging of Chinese language materials in all subject areas and in any format, covering print and non-print monographs and serials, audiovisual materials, microforms and remote electronic resources. I catalog Chinese and English-Chinese materials for the rest of university libraries as well. In addition, I am responsible for maintaining Chinese catalog, solving conflicts between catalog records and the collection, working on backlogs and managing special projects. I assist library users when needed.
