Judith Harris joined the Reference Department staff on August 6, 2003. Her subject specialties are: Anthropology, Communication, Journalism, Art, Theater, and Dance. The duties she will be fulfilling include library instruction, collection development, reference service, and the creation and maintenance of web pages.
In 1995, Judith left her home state of Maine to obtain a Master of Library Science degree from the University of Iowa. Upon completion of her studies, she was hired as a social sciences librarian at the University of Houston.
While at the University of Houston, Judith created, maintained, and managed ready-reference web pages that enabled all library personnel to access answers to questions quickly and easily. This resulted in an enhanced, effective, and more consistent reference desk service. Additionally, Judith undertook an analysis of the reference collection that led to her managing a project to weed and update the Reference Collection.
Judith is delighted to return to Maine where most of her family resides. She may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 581-3612.
