Cook Library by the Numbers

Fresh Faces in Circulation, Interlibrary Loan, and Research & Instruction

subpagepic This year's spring semester brings more than flowers and finals; Cook Library welcomes four new members to our ranks.

Andrew Yager (not pictured) is the new Evening Library Technician for the Circulation department. Andrew comes to Cook from the Friends School of Baltimore and looks forward to working with students, faculty, and staff while supporting Circulation projects. His enthusiasm for patron service is matched by his interest in board games and he is looking forward to contributing to Cook Library's gaming initiatives.

Eric Richardson (center) joined Interlibrary Loan as a Library Technician in January. In this role, Eric processes requests placed by Towson students, faculty and staff for outside materials. Eric hopes to complete the Baltimore marathon this year and his reading interests include the Game of Thrones series by George R.R. Martin. He moved to Baltimore from Boston and enjoys the change of scenery and good campus environment at Towson University.

Both Megan Browndorf (right) and Matt Brower (left) became part of the Research and Instruction department during the last few months. Megan is the new History department liaison and she has already begun working with faculty to teach their students how to find, use, and evaluate information in that field. Her involvement in the Russian and East European Institute at Indiana University and her interest in Russian Language have led her to help initiate a weekly Russian Language table. She is reading A Dirty War by Anna Politkovskaia, is a fan of George R. R. Martin, and has recently joined the Charm City Roller Girls as an official.

Matt Brower assumed the role of Learning Commons Associate last November after working for many years as a Library Technician in the Circulation department. In this new role, Matt spends many hours answering students' questions at the Research Help Desk and through the library's chat reference service. Librarianship runs in his family and his latest reads include Death in Venice by Thomas Mann.

Cook Library is open during the summer months and these new staff members are happy to help you obtain the information you need.
