Christine Walczyk - University Librarian/Distance Education Manager | email@example.com
Christine Walczyk, known affectionately to students as Dr. Tine (teen), comes to SSU with over 20 years of experience providing information assistance. She views the role of librarian as being a Knowledge Transfer Consultant ready to assist others with the tools and skills to tackle their research needs. Tine obtained her MLIS from the University of Texas at Austin and her Ph.D. in Information Science from the University of North Texas. Within the field of librarianship, she has worked in or with every department of a library, learning their processes, and providing support and direction for students, faculty, staff, and the general public. Within academia, she has held regular adjunct teaching assignments at UT Austin, Texas Woman’s University, and the University of North Texas in topics such as Database Management, Digital Libraries, Information Retrieval, Information Organization, and Information Communication Technology. Lastly, blurring the lines of both, Tine has regularly provided workshops and training at various library conferences, supported small libraries as an independent Technology Consultant, and provided years of software training – including a project delivering training for Microsoft for their international software support engineers. Many people believe librarians know it all. Tine knows she doesn’t know it all but knows where to find it!
