Decades of academic library experience; focused on management/leadership, reference, information literacy instruction, and assessment. Presented papers at Computers in Libraries, American Library Association, Florida Library Association, and Florida Reading Council. At Eastern Florida State College, in addition to participating on many collegewide and library committees, I collaborated on the design and construction supervision of the new library and other campus buildings; served as the college’s Tenure and Professional Development Council Chair; and most recently facilitated the development of the college’s Copyright policies and procedures, including co-presenting a workshop on Copyright Law in Education to faculty and staff.
In addition to her current faculty position in the Evans Library, Ms. Odom teaches research strategies and library resources and is the library’s liaison to the College of Aeronautics.
Prior experience consists of Document Delivery Librarian, Staff Librarian and Circulation/Serials Librarian for Pierce College in Philadephia. Professional affiliations include the American Library Association, Florida Library Association, and the Library Association of Brevard (President 2000-2002).
I have worked in academic and public libraries and in a variety of job positions – I’ve worked in the Serials department, Reference, Government Documents, and am now working in Technical Services. I work with ILL’s and also with processing incoming books. Libraries have always fascinated me – books, periodicals, online databases, – a vast amount of knowledge waiting to be discovered.
