New Faces in the Law Library

Posted by Library Blog on 01/16/2015 at 04:26 PM

As we promised in our New Year, New in the Law Library post, we now introduce you to two new librarians whom you might see at the reference desk.

Nicole Dyszlewski joined the library staff as Research/Access Services Librarian on January 14. She will provide reference & research services to faculty, students, and staff, coordinate instruction with the Legal Practice faculty, and manage the circulation/access desk. Nicole comes to us from the Maine State Law & Legislative Library where she served for three years as a Senior Law Librarian. Nicole holds a Master’s in Library and Information Studies from the University of Rhode Island. She earned her law degree at Boston University School of Law. In addition to her previous experience as an temporary reference librarian at the Northeastern, UMass Dartmouth, and the Rhode Island State law libraries, Nicole practiced law at McGill Law in East Providence, where she represented clients in real estate matters, corporate law, creditors’ rights, landlord-tenant matters, and estate planning.

Katherine (Kat) Craig will be joining the library staff as the new Acquisitions & Digital Resources Librarian on January 20. She will: manage digital resources, serve as a contact for faculty purchases, coordinate print and digital acquisitions, and provide assistance at the reference desk. Kat joins us from the Baylor Health Sciences Library, part of the Texas A & M University, where she served as the Digital & Web Services Librarian. Kat holds a Master’s in Library Science from the University of Pittsburgh and a B.S. in Biology and Anthropology from Ball State University. Prior to her tenure in the Texas A & M System, Kat provided reference and research services at Carnegie Mellon’s Hunt Library.

In addition to their experience and educational backgrounds, both Nicole and Kat are active members in the library profession. Please join the library staff in welcoming them to the School of Law.
