New Members Join Syracuse University Libraries Marketing and Communications Team
Cristina Hatem, director of strategic marketing and communications, and Meara Mosny, communications coordinator, recently joined Syracuse University Libraries’ Marketing and Communications team. Hatem and Mosny will focus on marketing and communications activities that advance the mission and vision of Syracuse University Libraries, tell its stories, promote services and share how its people, places, collections and services support the needs of key constituents, including students, faculty, staff and alumni.

Newhouse School of Public Communications and College of Arts and Sciences in 1992, and a master’s degree from Le Moyne College in 2006.

“Libraries have undergone a metamorphosis over the years,” says David Seaman, Syracuse University Libraries dean and librarian and interim dean of the School of Information Studies. “Syracuse University Libraries is a vibrant hub of the University’s physical, academic and innovation community. Therefore, it’s critical to have professionals on staff who can share that message.”
Syracuse University Libraries provides expertise, information and tools for students, faculty and staff, alumni, and the community. With over 4.6 million volumes of resources accessed by 1.2 million physical visits and 1.3 million online visits annually, the Libraries provides information services, responsive collections, knowledgeable staff, and safe and accessible physical and digital spaces that encourage intellectual exploration. In so doing, Syracuse University Libraries enables the creation of new knowledge, catalyzes scholarly collaboration and cultural exchange, and advances Syracuse University’s teaching, learning and research mission.
