LIBRARIES. REFEREnce. INSTRUCTION. Scholarly Comms.
Hello, I'm Jelena. I'm an early-career librarian, currently working in the Freedom of Information Office at the Ministry of the Environment & Climate Change.
I recently worked a term as a Chemistry Librarian at University of Toronto. In this role, I managed the library, offered reference services and instruction, and negotiated contracts to help students in their studies and research.
I am interested in how libraries can support scholarly communication and research through info literacy initiatvies. I am particularly interested in digital initiatives, instruction, special collections, interdisciplinary education, online communities, and open culture.
