Dick Smith Library – Main Floor

Jennifer received her Bachelors degree in Social Work from Midwestern State University and her Master of Library Science from the University of North Texas. Before coming to the Dick Smith Library in 2001, Jennifer worked for seven years at the Wichita Falls Public Library.

Her first experience at Tarleton State University was in high school, when she came here to compete in parliamentary procedure, dairy cattle and land judging competitions for her school’s FFA team.

Today, Jennifer oversees the library’s Access Services Department which includes Circulation, Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad), Distance Services for off-campus students, and room reservations.

All students, staff, and faculty have library privileges. A Texan Card or other photo ID is required to borrow materials from the library. If the library doesn’t own the item that you need, the Interlibrary Loan (ILLiad) service may be able to get it for you, usually free of charge.

If you are taking classes online or at another campus, ask Jennifer about distance services available to you. You may be eligible for home delivery of library materials to assist you in your research needs.

Jennifer is library liaison to the Human Science Department and to the Center for Instructional Technology and Distributed Education (CITDE). Her hobbies include painting, making jewelry, and vacationing.

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