Mei Wang 王玫
I have been working for the MLibrary since 2000, starting from Monograph and Serial Acquisitions at Taubman Medical Library, and then 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 was a school-district coordinator for instructional support. In 2009, I received a Master's degree in Library and Information Sciences from Wayne State University while working full time at MLibrary. A year later, I obtained Certificate of "Metadata for Digital Collection" from University of Wisconsin- Milwaukee, School of Information Studies Professional Development Institute.
My role at the Asia Library includes original and complex copy cataloging of Chinese language materials in all subject areas and in all formats, covering monographs and serials, audiovisual materials, microform and remote electronic resources. Cataloging Chinese and English-Chinese language materials purchased by other university libraries is also part of my job. In addition, I am responsible for maintaining Chinese catalog, solving conflicts between catalog records and the collection, working on clearing backlogs and managing special projects. I assist library users and answer reference questions when needed.
