About Erin

Howdy; I'm Erin! I've been in the Newton Gresham Library since 2007 (don't do the math, I've been here forever, I'm old!!). I'm the librarian department head for Access Services (think: the Service Desk, plus the folks behind the scenes that get all the books on the shelves) and Interlibrary Services (my people have interlibrary loan superpowers). I also provide Scholarly Communication services (supporting needs in research data management, copyright, scholarly publishing, research impact, and more). I was formerly the History Librarian until about 2020.

I enjoy my job to an embarrassing degree, but when I'm not engaged in doing my job, I love reading (especially speculative fiction!!), watching movies, and marveling at my kiddo's spatial awareness skills (e.g., building magnet tile towers).

Erin's Top 5 Books

Erin's Top Five Playlist

It was incredibly hard to choose only one song to represent this album; it is, in its entirety, amazing. If I could live with only three musical albums, The Final Cut would definitely be one of them.
