Biography

As Director of Libraries at California College of the Arts, a small private art and design college, Annemarie leads CCA libraries in serving its communities as a hub for information literacy, instructional technology, faculty development, student engagement, and high impact teaching and learning practices. Annemarie is passionate about libraries empowering and inspiring their community’s knowledge creation. Annemarie enjoys playing with the definition of what constitutes a library resource, the intersectionality of technology and library & archival traditions, and tinkering with new ideas in general. She draws upon strong influences from traditional library and archival science, contemporary fine art and design studies, instructional technology, and the pure joy of having fun. Annemarie is always looking for opportunities to learn from and collaborate with current and future colleagues throughout the field.
