Robin Bowles recently joined Falvey Memorial Library as a member of the Life Sciences/Nursing team. Robin has a master of science in library and information science from Drexel University where she specialized in medical and life sciences research and instruction. She received her bachelor’s degree in liberal studies with a concentration in science and mathematics from West Chester University. 

Before coming to Villanova University, she worked at Colorado State University as the interim liaison librarian in biology and veterinary medicine. She has also held positions at the University of Pennsylvania Biomedical Library in reference and interlibrary loan, and at the Devereux Behavioral Healthcare Library (Villanova, Pa.) in serials management, assessment, interlibrary loan and document delivery. 

Robin, a native of the Philadelphia area, noted that her high school graduation was held here on campus in the Pavilion. 

Her hobbies are hiking, sewing, logic puzzles and attempting to master all of Google’s products and services.

 Robin said, “I’m very excited by the prospect of forging long-term relationships with people here at Villanova …and integrating new technology into the learning environment of the future.”

    Hi Robin,

    I am in Dr. Russell’s Marine Bio class. I had a quick question about Zotero. I have a bunch of pdf files saved into Zotero for use in my assignment. With the pdf files, unlike the journal articles taken off the internet, there is little to no source information saved into Zotero. Is there a way to extract source information from the pdf into Zotero to make citing easy? Thanks Robin.
