The Terman Engineering Library has two new faces who would love to meet you!  Digital Services and Projects Librarian Alexandra Krogman, who joined Stanford Libraries November 26, 2018, and Data and Collections Librarian Linnea Shieh (’05), who joined us on February 04, 2019.

Ali, a Southern California native, holds a BS in Biology, Summa Cum Laude, from Fresno State.  She came to Stanford from the Grainger Engineering Library at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign where she spent five combined years, first as a Graduate Assistant and, after earning her MS in Library and Information Science, as an Engineering Resident Librarian.  Ali joins us with prior experience as an engineering librarian at a major research library and with a strong background in user experience, web development, and graphic design.  This background and experience are valuable to her new role as Engineering Librarian for Digital Services and Projects.  In addition to her role as a subject specialist and reference librarian in Engineering, she will also be a liaison for the Science and Engineering Libraries to Stanford’s Digital Library Systems and Services (DLSS).

Linnea, a 2005 Stanford graduate in Biological Sciences with Honors, earned her MS in Library and Information Science from the University of Washington.  She worked for nearly a decade  as a Data Analyst for Google’s Trust & Safety Team before coming back to Stanford to serve as our Engineering Librarian for Data and Collections; her skills with data analysis and her familiarity with Stanford will help with her focus on collection development and analytics.  Linnea will be taking a lead role in selecting and building the materials in the Engineering Library and will serve as the main point of contact for acquisitions.

See Ali’s and Linnea’s profiles for more information, and come visit them in Terman to welcome both of them to Stanford!
