UCF Libraries welcomes our new Electronic Resources Librarian, Faye Mazzia!
Faye joins us from Touro University Nevada where she served as the small university’s Electronic & Technical Services Librarian and managed a collection that was 95% electronic. She has a Master’s in Library and Information Sciences from University of Arizona, with a focus in academic and digital librarianship.
If you look at Libraries’ faculty and staff bios, you will find a series of questions and answers to get to know us better (and find the important things like favorite book). We posed those same questions to Faye.
What are your main job responsibilities?
My main job responsibilities include assigning subject headings and call numbers to electronic resources. Basically doing what I can to make sure eresources (ebooks and ejournals) are accessible and discoverable to the UCF community!
What does working at a library mean to you?
My favorite part about working in the library is the collection! I’m fascinated by just how much information is out there, be it print or electronic.
What is your favorite book?
I think I can narrow my favorite books down to just 2!
Lord of the Flies by William Golding: I often think about how I would fare on a deserted island – probably not well.
Finders Keepers: A Tale of Archaeological Plunder and Obsession by Craig Childs: This exposes the murky ethics of the archaeology field.
