Kelci Baughman McDowell

Reference Library Assistant

kelci baughman mcdowellWhat I Do:
I help people do research and evaluate information; I champion Gleeson Library to the USF community; I support my department in doing all these same things. One of the most rewarding things I do is supervise the department student workers.

Bio:
I earned a MLIS from San Jose State University in 2016 and I hold two degrees from USF (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. I am always dreaming of my next adventure, whether that be an escapade in librarianship or hitting the open road.

Interests:
My interests include poetry, book arts, information theory, and human rights, especially labor rights.
