Heather Cannon, M.L.I.S.
Systems and Resources Librarian

Librarians like searching; users like finding. My goal is to make the information that is available as easy and seamless to find as possible. The same qualities that make library systems more accurate for finding information also make them less simple to use. I try to close that gap from behind the scenes. If I’m succeeding at my goal, one shouldn’t know I’m even here. My oft-repeated quote to students is “Please complain!” If something isn’t working, I won’t be able to fix it unless I know about it. And I want to know!

Please email or call me at 312.662.4239 if you have questions or would like more information about me.
