We Would Like You to Meet: Tony Ivankovic
When the Oviatt Library and the National Center on Deafness (NCOD) set out to find someone who could help to better serve the needs of CSUN students who use the NCOD Library, all signs clearly pointed to Anthony Ivankovic. The newly created NCOD Library Coordinator position will supervise the NCOD Library in Chisolm Hall and work part of the time in Guest Services at the Oviatt. Anthony Ivankovic officially started work as the NCOD Library Coordinator in the Oviatt Library on May 21, but he is no stranger to the Library or to CSUN.
We Would Like You to Meet: David Morck
What would be the result if you combined a highly skilled web programmer and a uniquely gifted poet? Our guess would be the Library’s very own multi-talented David Morck of course.
Long before considering a college career, David Morck already had developed a keen interest in technology and deep appreciation of language. David was born in Pasadena, California and raised in a household with a father who was an engineer and a mother who held advanced degrees in both English and psychology, so David had the importance of education instilled in him very early.
We Would Like you to Meet: Michael Barrett
In the season and spirit of giving, we would like to introduce Michael Barrett, a member of the Oviatt family whose very presence has been an inspirational gift to the entire CSUN community for the last four decades. Michael Barrett was born in Bakersfield, California, where he was raised on his family’s farm. After high school, he began his path into higher education close to home at Bakersfield College.
We Would Like You to Meet: Sarah Sayeed
Originally from Orange County, Sarah began to work at the Oviatt Library in November 2012 after completing her Bachelor of Architecture at California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. While pursuing her degree, Sarah worked as a Learning Commons Assistant in Cal Poly’s Robert E. Kennedy Library, as well as a Computer Lab Assistant and in the Architecture Department. Her experiences in the library eventually helped Sarah to select library design as the basis for her senior thesis project.
We Would Like you to Meet: Laurie Borchard
As a Digital Learning Initiatives Librarian, my primary focus is meeting the needs of our students in an online environment. This means that I collaborate with fellow librarians and campus faculty in planning initiatives relating to information competency, embedded librarianship (where the librarian is integrated into Moodle), open access repositories, and the creation of digital learning objects.
We Would Like you to Meet: Lizette Campos
For many young people today, the doorway to success often appears padlocked. For San Fernando Valley native, CSUN alumna and Library employee Lizette Campos, however, a passion for education, unyielding determination, and a winning smile proved to be the perfect combination.
We would like you to meet…
Our heartfelt congratulations go out to the Oviatt’s own Iris Caplan who was honored along with recipients from colleges across the campus at the Volunteer Service Awards banquet on November 1 at the Airtel Plaza Hotel. The library is proud to introduce you to Iris Caplan who has been a faithful and committed member of the Friends of the Library board over the past few years, where she served as Hospitality Chair.
