About Dianna E Sachs

As the Instructional Services Librarian, I oversee the information literacy initiatives at the WMU Libraries, including providing information literacy and research instruction classes to students, faculty, and staff. I also coordinate library and research orientation programs across campus, in person and online. I am liaison to the Anthropology Department, and also provide reference and research assistance through the Central Reference Department.
I am interested in information literacy, research instruction, assessment, social media in libraries, and classroom and learning environments. My current research interests include the effects of background music in the classroom, assessment of learning in the online environment, and information literacy in the first college year.
