Meet Our Staff: Tracy Holtman

Tracy Holtman
Assistant Director for Collection Management
Dick Smith Library – Main Foor

Tracy supervises the library’s technical services departments:  Acquisitions, Cataloging, Periodicals and Electronic Resources, and Systems.

Tracy has always wanted to be a librarian. She started working in her school library in fifth grade, and has had a library job ever since. She has a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Lubbock Christian University, and her masters in library science from the University of North Texas. She spent 13 years at Lubbock Christian University, and has been at the Dick Smith Library for nine years, starting as a reference librarian and moving into the Systems Librarian position after seven months.
