Librarian Nancy Young Retires
UI Reference Librarian and Professor Nancy Young is retiring July 31. Young, who holds an MLS degree from the University of Wisconsin and a JD degree from the University of California at Berkeley, serves as the library’s Social Sciences subject liaison to the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences.
Since coming to the University of Idaho in 1998, Young has seen many changes. “The internet and the World Wide Web were just beginning to be part of everyday life then,” she said. “Over the past 15 years, I have had the opportunity to experience the impact of the Web and electronic resources on the library’s resources and services.” In 2000, Young was one of the team of faculty, librarians and information technologists that integrated information literacy and technology into the interdisciplinary freshman core classes as part of an Idaho State Board of Education grant. She also taught a section of the freshman core, “Cultural Encounters: The Latino Story.”
