University Libraries is pleased to announce the hiring of Katherine Heilman as the new electronic resources librarian and assistant professor in the Department of Technical Services. For the past eight years, Heilman worked for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Library as a collections and acquisitions librarian. Prior to this position, she taught special education at the secondary level for New York City Public Schools in South Bronx, New York.
In her role as electronic resources librarian, Heilman will be involved with the acquisition of e-resources and support access to the Libraries’ owned, licensed and subscribed online collections. She will also be working to ensure the effectiveness and discoverability of these resources to meet the educational and research needs of the University.
“I am really excited to join the UNCG community,” said Heilman. “I look forward to working collaboratively across the campus with our students, faculty, and staff.”
Heilman holds a master’s degree in library and information science from Syracuse University and a master’s degree in education from The City University of New York. She obtained her bachelor of arts degree in political science from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. When she is not working or chasing after her two young children, Heilman can be found cooking, gardening or reading on her front porch.
