Hello! I’m Emily Hamstra, the new Outreach Coordinator for the Pacific Northwest Region. I grew up in Michigan, and currently live in Seattle.
I began my career at the University of Michigan Library, where I was an instruction librarian and the subject librarian for Kinesiology. Since moving to Seattle in 2016, I’ve worked at the Seattle Public Library and ProQuest. I’m the past-chair of the Reference and User Services Association’s Collection Development and Evaluation Section (RUSA-CODES).
When I’m not at work, I enjoy reading, gardening, and walking my dog. I’m learning the ins and outs of baking sourdough bread.
I’m excited to be here, and I’m looking forward to working with you all!
