Hello! Thank you for visiting my e-portfolio. My name is Mandi and I’m currently the Performing Arts & Humanities Librarian at Cleveland State University. Please take a moment to explore this portfolio and learn a little more about me!
I’m originally from Appleton, WI and I got my BA in Music and English from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. I graduated from the Library and Information Science program at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign in May of 2013 with a special interest in academic libraries and music libraries. My first job out of library school was as Reference and Instruction Librarian at Georgia Southwestern State University in Americus, GA. I now work as the Performing Arts & Humanities Librarian at Cleveland State University in downtown Cleveland. When I’m not answering reference questions and teaching students about information literacy, I am taking classes in Adult Learning and Development, and I’m set to graduate with my Masters of Education in 2018. My passions are information literacy instruction, open educational resources, critical thinking, and creating strong campus and community collaborations.
My other interests include excessive baking (and pawning off my creations on others), playing my viola in one of Cleveland’s community orchestras, watching nerdy things like Doctor Who and Buffy, and going to indie music concerts.
Feel free to contact me with questions or comments in the Contact tab above. You can also connect with me on LinkedIn or through Twitter (my handle is mgoodsett1015). I’d love to hear from you!
