About Margie Ruppel

In my work as a Reference Librarian at Albertsons Library, I focus on providing both traditional and online reference and instruction, selecting materials that support the College of Education, and reaching out to faculty and students. Librarian and faculty collaboration allows me to provide relevant and meaningful library services. I specialize in information literacy for education researchers, first-year students, and history majors, as well as finding innovative and online methods for providing library services.
