About Xue-Ming Bao (包学鸣)

I have been working at Seton Hall University since 1997. I have served as Associate Professor, Electronic Resources, Systems, and Digital Services Librarian. I have participated in the Library transition to OCLC’s WorldShare Management System, a new Integrated Library Systems (ILS), from Voyager. Problem solving is integral to my job. I have insured timely and accurate access to library e-collections through the variety of collections management tools. I have gathered and processed data from our e-resources, and provided various kinds of usage and collection statistics.

I have taught library instructional classes to students from freshman to graduate student, provided reference services, served as Library Liaison to Asian Studies and taught research methods in Asian Studies. I have published in peer-reviewed journals of library sciences and made presentations in professional conferences in the U.S.A. and China.

Education: Ed.D., Northern Illinois University, 1989; M.L.S., Northern Illinois University, 1991; M.Ed., and University of Victoria, 1983.
