Mea works with the departments of Math, Computer Science, Physics, and Earth and Atmospheric Science to ensure that students, faculty, and researchers have access to all the resources needed of a Tier-One research university. From teaching instruction sessions on library resources to developing collections that better suit the needs of my departments, she is the liaison that connects these departments to the library. She is interested in producing better outcomes for information literacy, evaluating the constantly evolving collections, and ensuring that everyone is aware and utilizes all the services that the library provides. She is also interested in encouraging more diversity and generating excitement for students who study within the STEM fields.
Mea received her Bachelor’s degree from Duke University and her Master of Library Science degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, during which she worked at the Environmental Protection Agency in Research Triangle Park.
