Welcome Region 4’s New Communication Specialist

Posted in: Blog

Lauren sitting on top of a cliff overlooking a mountain range in Washington StateGreetings! My name is Lauren Wittek, and I am the new Region 4 Communication Specialist. I started working for Region 4 at the end of July 2023 and am based out of the University of Arizona’s Health Sciences Library. In my new role, I will be developing and managing internal and external communication to promote Region 4 and NNLM activities, services, and projects.

I have over seven years of experience working in academic libraries, primarily in UX and outreach-focused roles. In my most recent position, I served as Central Washington University Libraries’ User Experience and Assessment Librarian. I managed the library’s web presence as well as taught credit-bearing library courses, assisted students and faculty with reference questions, and taught one-shot sessions.

I earned an MLIS from the University of Washington and a BS in Marketing from the University of Maryland. As someone with personal experience with disability, I am particularly passionate about accessibility and have presented at national and regional conferences as well as published articles and book chapters on the subject. In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with my two dogs, watching classic movies and TV shows, and traveling.

I am excited to join the Region 4 team and look forward to getting to know members better as time goes on! Please reach out if you have any suggestions for ways in which NNLM can help your organization or community.
