Introducing Two Fabulous New Librarians

On November 4th, the Columbia College Chicago Library welcomed two new librarians:

Molly Beestrum joins the staff as the new Library Instruction Coordinator. Molly comes to Columbia from the Rebecca Crown Library of Dominican University, where she served as Instructional Services Coordinator and Systems Librarian. In addition, she has designed and taught various courses for the Dominican University Graduate School of Library and Information Science. Molly serves as Chair of the Instruction Team of the College and Research Libraries of Illinois consortium, has presented at the Illinois Library Association Conference and has served on various academic committees at Dominican University.

April Levy serves in the role of Reference and Instruction Librarian. April’s most recent position was Reference Coordinator and Instruction Librarian at Ludcke Library of Lesley University in Cambridge, MA, where she coordinated scheduling and staffing of reference and research services for both on- and off-campus students, worked with the Instruction Team to design information literacy instruction for the English Composition Program, provided technology training to faculty and library staff and served as liaison to academic departments. Previously, April served as Extension Services Librarian and Assistant Professor at Woodward Library of Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN.
