Alyssa Valenti

I'm an academic librarian specializing in technology and information literacy. I'm most interested in teaching information literacy in online environments and using emerging technologies to deliver effective services. I help maintain my library's website and manage all of the electronic resources that we subscribe to. I serve as a reference librarian and am especially interested in virtual reference for distance learners. My favorite things to do while not "librarian-ing" are spending time with my husband, Rob and my son, Simon. We enjoy bird-watching and have traveled to Cape May and Mexico during peak migration times to see some special birds. I thoroughly enjoy a good beer and really like wine and wine festivals. I like running and yoga and have run in a bunch of local 5ks. In addition to all of this, I like investigating new technology and trends and experiment with web development and design.
