Location: Web Based Training
Julie Pepera, Customer Education Specialist, received her Bachelor in History from Albion College and her Masters in Information Science from the University of Michigan’s School of Information. She staffed the reference desks of several university libraries around the state of Michigan. Julie has also worked in the online community with organizations such as JSTOR and Google.
Julie has a passion for building the information literacy skills of patrons and students. In learning to use databases and eResources, people develop important skill sets that help them discern the value of information and make informed decisions. In a world where there is an overload of information, these skills are the key to being informed and judicious.
Julie hopes that all educators develop a proactive philosophy with their eResources rather than reacting to projects as they come and seeing the databases as a pile of information. Her lessons focus on helping participants understand the pieces of eResources so that librarians and teachers can direct people to the materials that are right for them.
