Hello and welcome!
Are you a prospective student interested in learning more about our Library Technology, Archives & Digital Collections, and Digitization Certificate Programs? Or perhaps a current student seeking information about class schedules, internships, course substitutions, or pre-requisites? Or either of the above or an alumni, looking for more support in writing or updating a resume and preparing for an interview? Or perhaps a student just looking for more instruction and help in the research process?
As the Outreach Librarian and Library Technology Certificate Programs Coordinator, I am always happy to meet and support students! I love that I get to be one of the first people to help students and community members find an answer to a question, start a research project at the reference desk, and/or take the next step in moving toward a career in libraries!
I believe that information is power, and that with access to resources, support, and a little guidance, we can all learn something new, explore and think critically about the world around us, and be empowered to move forward and take our next steps with more confidence. I love what I do because I believe what makes us human is our stories, and we as librarians and library workers can play a small role in humanity by preserving and giving access to all our stories.
If you'd like to book an appointment or consultation with me in person or on the phone, you can do so directly here at https://pasadena.libcal.com/appointments/jochencham.
You can also email me at email@example.com or call me at (626) 585-7820.
I understand life is busy and many students have demanding schedules, so if you would like to meet outside of the listed availabilities, please email me and we can arrange for an alternative meeting time. Nursing mothers/parents, parents, and caregivers, your children are welcome to join the meeting. I look forward to meeting with you!
