Lindsay Davis - Instruction & Outreach Librarian: About Lindsay Davis

About Lindsay Davis

What does Lindsay really do?

Hi, I'm the Instruction & Outreach Librarian. I joined the UC Merced Library in June 2016.

I teach research skills; develop digital learning tools, research guides, and lesson plans; and provide help with research.

I also communicate about library services and resources to the programs in Student Affairs and help with planning New Student Orientations, Welcome Week, Bobcat Day, Preview Day, etc. I'm the co-liaison to the Social Sciences, including economics, public health, and management, as well as the liaison for Spanish.

I'm the daughter of a Mexican immigrant and a native to the Central Valley. I was the first in my family to attend college. I discovered librarianship when I was in college after taking a library resources class and from the suggestion of my advisor who told my about graduate school. Learning how to do academic research is a process, and I love helping students with their research. Please come see me or make an appointment if you need some help or suggestions with your research in English or Spanish.
