Kelci Baughman McDowell

kelciReference Library Assistant 


Office: Gleeson 127

What I Do:

I mainly supervise the student workers in the Reference Department and manage the Reference Computer Lab. Additionally, I help the department provide top notch research assistance to the University community in many subtle ways. 


I am a California native and a USF alumna (BA in English 2005; MFA in Writing 2009). I have worked in Gleeson Library on and off in the Reference and Research Services Department since 2001. I have traveled extensively in Western Europe and I crossed the Atlantic by freighter ship in 2012. In fall 2013 I began courses in Library and Information Sciences at San Jose State University. 


My interests include poetry, book arts, information theory, and human rights, especially labor rights. You can find me on twitter: @kelci_kelse.
