UIC Library Faculty Profile: Gwen Gregory: Gregory Profile

Professional Duties and Biography

I am the UIC Library's Resource Acquisition and Management Librarian and a clinical associate professor.  I am head of the Resource Acquisition and Management (RAM) Department.  This department purchases and makes available all formats of materials for the UIC community, including books, DVDs, journals, and electronic resources for Daley Library and the Libraries of the Health Sciences.  Our departmental mission statement: RAM acquires, organizes, and maintains information resources, providing access for users by working in collaboration with internal and global partners.

I have also worked at a number of other libraries, including those at the John Marshall Law School, Colorado College, and New Mexico State University.  I have a Master of Library Science from the University of Arizona, a Master of Public Administration from New Mexico State University, and a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology from the University of New Mexico.  I am a member of the American Library Association, the Association of College and Research Libraries, and the Illinois Library Association. I currently serve as Vice-President of the Board of Directors of the Reaching Across Illinois Library System (RAILS).
