Welcome to Falvey: Margot Accettura Joins Research Services & Scholarly Engagement

Margot Accettura, STEM Librarian.

Margot Accettura joined Research Services & Scholarly Engagement (RSSE) as the STEM Librarian. From Morristown, N.J., she earned a bachelor’s degree in physics from Skidmore College and a master’s degree in imaging science from the Rochester Institute of Technology. Currently enrolled at PennWest Clarion University, Accettura will receive a master’s of science in library information science this year. Previously working for her undergraduate library and the Phoenixville Public Library, Accettura feels her role at Falvey perfectly integrates her STEM experience and passion for libraries.

“As a member of the RSSE team, I will be working with students and faculty to support them with their learning and research goals. I will be working with the astronomy, biology, chemistry, computing sciences, environment science, mathematics, and physics departments. I will provide outreach to these departments, showing them the services that Falvey provides. I will also be providing information literacy instruction to courses.” Having a STEM background, Accettura feels she can connect with students in their collegiate careers at Villanova. “I understand what STEM students are going through…There are a lot of ways I think having a better knowledge of what the library had to offer would’ve helped me in my research and I’m hoping to share that with Villanova students and faculty.”

In her free time (when she’s not reading), Accettura enjoys running. She is part of a local running group in her town. “I also like to do archery and my new year’s resolution this year is to reignite my passion for piano which I played for 8 years in my youth.” Her reading recommendation for Falvey patrons: Circe, by Madeline Miller. “She writes re-imaginings of Greek mythology and I like all of her work.”

“I’m very excited for this opportunity and am looking forward to working with my liaison departments and the broader Villanova community,” she says. Accettura’s office (room 220) is on the second floor of Falvey Library. Email; (610) 519-8129.
