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…

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.
