Two New Librarians Join Syracuse University Libraries
Syracuse University Libraries recently appointed two new librarians: Winn Wasson, social science librarian reporting to Anne Rauh, and Chelsea Hoover, catalog librarian reporting to Robert Cleary.
Wasson joined the Department of Research and Scholarship as a liaison librarian for the Maxwell School and some social science departments in the College of Arts and Sciences. As a member of the instruction team, he will work closely with the Information Literacy Program to provide instruction to undergraduate students. Wasson was most recently social science librarian at New College of Florida and University of South Florida-Sarasota-Manatee. He earned a master’s degree in library and information sciences from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He also earned a master’s degree in international relations from the University of Chicago and a bachelor’s degree in government and citation in German from Harvard University.
As a catalog librarian for primarily music materials, Hoover will be responsible for preparing bibliographic records to represent items acquired by the Libraries and to provide efficient access and retrieval for catalog users. Hoover was previously a music and media cataloging assistant at the University of Arkansas. She earned a master’s degree in music librarianship from Indiana University, and holds a master’s degree and a bachelor’s degree in horn performance from the University of Georgia.
