Access Services Associate
Vanessa is the weekend and evening Access Services Associate. Building upon their Interlibrary Loan experience and collections projects, such as Book Traces, they transitioned to support Access Services with a passion for workflow assessment and great customer service at the iDesk. Previously a departmental assistant, they worked with student employees to conduct Babbidge Library’s Lost and Missing Items search and contributed to the development of a new iDesk staff program, training iDesk staff as well. In their new role, they are excited to continue supporting the iDesk, process physical course reserves, and engage with the broader UConn community. They graduated from UConn with a B.A. in Actuarial Science-Finance and a minor in Statistics.
In their free time, they like to read children's books, learn about art history, and listen to music with their dog.
