Now that we’re all back to campus in-real-life (and masks are optional for now!)– it seems a good time to introduce some new faces in the library.
A warm welcome to Holly White, who will serve as our Instructional Designer for Research, Teaching, and Learning beginning June 1, 2022. Holly arrives to Davidson with an impressive background of library and instructional design experiences. Most recently, Holly served as the Instructional Design Librarian at Luther College in Iowa. While at Luther, she led the Moodle support team and collaborated closely with the Center for Excellence and in Learning & Teaching to support courses and spearhead faculty development. Prior to her stint at Luther, she worked as the Reference-Web Resources Librarian at Muskingham University, where she helped integrate a credit-bearing information literacy course into the curriculum, developed the library’s web presence, and assisted with library renovation efforts.
At Davidson, Holly will co-lead Moodle support, assist with student research and digital projects, and provide instructional design support. In this new role, Holly will help our library realize our vision for open educational practices. As part of these efforts, Holly will support Leganto (our new course resource list builder) and promote OER adoption and creation. We are simply thrilled that Holly is joining the team! Come June 1, you’ll find Holly near the library’s information desk on the first floor.
Ashley Mills joined the team in January 2022 in the position of Acquisitions & Collections Specialist on the Collections Strategies team. Prior to taking on this role, Ashley worked as a case manager for AllState Financial Services and as a financial solutions consultant and a senior preferred account service representative with Bank of America/Merrill Edge. Ashley has a B.A. in Sociology from the University of Florida and is currently attending East Carolina’s online M.L.S. program.
Since arriving to Davidson College, Ashley has been busy overseeing the procurement and processing of new materials in both physical and digital formats. As the primary point of contact for purchase requests, she works with faculty, staff, and students from across campus to expand access to resources and support projects that help to define our existing collections. In a very short time, Ashley has brought some amazing ideas and energy to our team. You’ll find Ashley in the library’s ILL area (back of the first floor).
Welcome Holly and Ashley! We’re so glad that you’re here with us.
