Erin Palmer joined Resource Management & Description (RM&D) as Resource Management and Description Coordinator. RM&D “builds and cultivates collections through acquisitions, licensing, description, discovery, and access to resources for Villanova scholars and community.” Describing her role, Palmer enjoys the variety of her work. “No two days are the same,” she reflects. “I’m part of a great team of three coordinators working in RM&D. My tasks range from ordering materials, processing invoices, cataloging new items, training student workers, and working with our incredible team on collaborative projects to better serve the patrons of Falvey.”
Palmer joins the Falvey Library staff after completing her master’s degree in library science from Clarion University. “With Villanova’s stellar reputation, applying here was a no-brainer! I saw the description for this position and thought it was an excellent opportunity to continue my learning in the field with hands-on experiences – something I have done and continue to do every day.” Originally from Central NJ, she has always considered PA a second home. She earned a bachelor’s degree in secondary education from Kutztown University. “From many camping trips growing up to my time in undergrad at Kutztown University I’ve always felt at home in the Keystone state. I ended up in the library field by way of a secondary education bachelor’s degree. While a bit different, my love for reading and research is a common presence between the two fields.”
An avid reader, Palmer read 89 books last year. “I also enjoy cooking and food in general! I spend many days off trying new restaurants with my boyfriend, two sisters, and friends.” Her reading recommendations for Falvey patrons: “For general fiction I recommend anything by Jennifer Weiner (I just recently finished Mrs. Everything) because I love the way she creates such complex characters. For fantasy I suggest the duology For the Wolf and For the Throne by Hannah Whitten, a fresh take on Little Red Riding Hood. For rom-com, I adore everything by Emily Henry and Christina Lauren. And I’d say for a thriller: All the Missing Girls by Megan Miranda.”
Palmer’s office is located on the second floor of Falvey Library. Email firstname.lastname@example.org; 610-519-7966. She encourages the Villanova community to reach out to the RM&D team. “We’re always happy to answer questions or to point anyone in the right direction!”
