COMMUNITIES. PUBLIC SERVICE. REFERENCE. Research.
Hello, I'm Jelena Stanković. I'm an early-career librarian, currently working as an operator with Scholars Portal's Ask a Librarian service where I provide virtual reference & research services to members of Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL) institutions.
I also spent two years at the Freedom of Information Office at the Ministry of the Environment & Climate Change as an FOI Analyst.
Prior to the FOI office, I worked a term as a Chemistry Librarian at University of Toronto. There, I managed the library, offered reference services & instruction, & negotiated contracts to help students in their studies & research.
I’m interested in supporting communities &empowering them in their information needs. I’m interested in instruction, special collections, & interdisciplinary education.
I strive to be a librarian in every workplace & to help people become confident & conscientious researchers in their professional & personal lives!
