We welcome Jenay Solomon as our 5th Diversity Resident. She began on July 25 and will be with the Libraries for two years.
Jenay comes to us from Nebraska where she received her BA in English from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and her MLS from Emporia State University. Jenay worked as a Graduate Research Assistant and Graduate Administrative Assistant in the School of Library and Information Management at Emporia State. She was also a Student Reference Assistant in Research and Information Services and in Diversity and Multicultural Services at the Love Library at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. She was an American Library Association Spectrum Scholar in 2014.
In her spare time Jenay enjoys reading, painting, cooking and listening to variety of music. She lives with her dog, Jade, and cat, Lacey. She also likes to travel and counts Palau (where her father is from) , England and Scotland among the places she's been so far.
Jenay is very excited about joining the Libraries and being our Resident. She looks forward to gaining solid experience in academic librarianship and bringing her skills and experience to the program.
