Cathy W. presents library instruction sessions to undergraduate and advanced classes. Faculty schedule the sessions, which are customized for each class. She also meets with individuals/groups who want research assistance.

• evaluate and document materials.

Cathy W. is library liaison to the Engineering & Technology Department and to Clinical Laboratory Sciences. She is also a Tarleton graduate:
• Bachelor of Science in Biology (1976),
• MAT in English (1982), and
• TEA Certification in English and Biology (1989).

Before obtaining her Master of Library Science degree (TWU) and joining Dick Smith Library in 2001, Cathy W. pursued several paths:
• Tarleton English & Languages Department instructor (11+ years),
• newspaper feature writer, production supervisor, and press operator (9+ years),
• theater technician (5+ years),
• Tarleton Grounds Maintenance student worker, and
• various odd jobs.

The last book Cathy W. read was Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, which she highly recommends. (The library owns the Harry Potter books. Check ‘em out!)

[Each week the library will feature a different staff member in Stephenville or Killeen.]
