Matthew Collins, MLIS
Reference, Instruction, and Zine Librarian
Philosophy, Latin American Studies, Fromm Institute for Lifelong Learning
I was born and raised in San Francisco. I have a B.A in literature from The University of San Francisco and a Masters of Library and Information Science from San Jose State University.
I began working for the Gleeson Library in 1997 in the Access Services Department. I joined the Reference Department in 2013. I help lead Gleeson Game Day and the Gleeson Zine Library. I am also part of the Gleeson Building Marshal team.
I love poetry, literature, genealogy, history, art, travel and exploring different cultures through these lenses. I enjoy arts and crafts, printmaking, zines, sculpture and am interested in fab labs, maker spaces and collaborative creation.
