The Library is pleased to welcome Anna Hernandez!
Anna holds the position of Senior Library Specialist for Technical Services. Her work will focus primarily on cataloging our print collections in a variety of languages. One of her first projects will be cataloging a recently purchased collection of science fiction and fantasy works.
Anna has lived in almost every region in the U.S. and now can say she’s lived in the largest and smallest states (but she greatly prefers Rhode Island over Texas and Alaska).
Prior to joining the Brown Library staff, Anna worked as a cataloger in the Media Resource Center of the University of Oklahoma’s Fine Arts Library. Also during that time, while earning her Master’s in Library and Information Science at OU, she worked as a Research Assistant for one of the SLIS’s department grant projects, Navigating Screens.
Before graduate school, Anna spent a year in Ibaraki, Japan as an Assistant English Teacher in a public elementary school and kindergarten of over seven hundred students. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies, her fields focusing on Creative Writing, Languages, and Art.
In her free time, she reads science fiction and fantasy, doodles Art Deco inspired pieces on her tablet, bakes far too many caloric sweets, and is working on completing a YA novel.
