For the past two years, I was the English Department's only librarian. I met with Aparna Zambare to both try and advocate for our department's serial budget and to help faculty order books for their teaching and research. I also met with and emailed the Library Dean in relation to our department's resources.
We were able to maintain a healthy serial budget until the Fall of 2021. I also communicated with various library staff about the importance of the collection to our department's teaching and research.
