Teresa Morris / Instruction & Reference Services Librarian

As a reference librarian my day includes helping students and faculty at the reference desk with research questions; selecting and purchasing new materials for the library; serving on campus and district committees and creating learning objects that help folks understand how to do research using library and Internet resources. As an instruction librarian my day includes teaching library orientations for various classes; teaching Library Studies courses, coordinating the assessment of the library's instruction programs; and collaborating with other discipline faculty to incorporate information competency skills and theory into their courses.

My schedule changes daily, but in general I'm on campus from 8-4pm Monday thru Friday during the Fall and Spring semesters. I can be contacted in several ways.

About Me
I have been the Instruction and Reference Librarian at the College of San Mateo Library since 2006. I earned tenure in 2010. I coordinate and teach library instruction (orientations) in the library and Library Studies (LIBR) credit courses at the college. I am also responsible for coordinating the reference and research services of the library - including reference assistance, interlibrary loan requests, and the coordination of on-going training for reference librarians. I've served as the chair of the Curriculum Committee (formerly called the Committee on Instruction) since 2011.

I earned a Bachelors of Arts in History from the University of California at Berkeley. I have also earned a Masters of Science in Library Science (MSLS) from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. My background in the library science field includes working as a education librarian at a CSU library and as a special collections librarian while working in professional librarian residency program.
