Dick Smith Library – Main Floor – Rm109J
Marie has been the Dick Smith Library’s Catalog Librarian since May 1, 2001. Her duties include copy cataloging (of items for which a catalog record already exists in the world) of all materials using the library’s SIRSI SmartPort software. She provides descriptive cataloging of items when a record is not available.
Marie is originally from the former Czechoslovakia, now known as the Czech Republic. She has lived in the United States since 1981. She obtained her first masters degree in library and information science from Charles University in Prague. She earned a second masters in library science from Kutztown University in Pennsylvania to learn the “American way” for cataloging and reference resources.
Marie is the library’s liaison to the Fine Arts Department and the Communications Studies Department. When not at work (cataloging, two hours a week at the reference desk, and participating in committees), Marie likes animals, good music, watching movies, and reading.
