May Sees the New Arrival of Steven Frets


How new are you to Nova, Steven?

I’m 2 weeks old. Moved all the way from Milwaukee, WI. Go Packers!

What’s your position title?

I’m Library Specialist II here at NOVA MEC.

What’s the first thing you noticed about the campus libraries?

The department’s dedication to providing students with tech resources.

E-reader or physical copy?

Does it have to be an either/or sitiuation? I’m unique in that I took 10 years off between undergrad and graduate school. I do not feel fully cozy in the strict confines of the Y or X generation. There are advantages to both.

OK, favorite authors…?

Got a minute? Ryu Murakami, Dostoyevsky, Forster, Edith Wharton, Isabel Allende, Emerson, Sjon, Zola, Philip Kerr, Suzanne Collins, Chomsky, Stephen King,…I love the classics but ask me about contemporary classics too. Too many…

What advice do you want to give to students?

Be wise in your decision-making. Solid decision-making comes from facts. So there is ALWAYS a need for you to utilize an information professional/librarian.
