Academic Liaison Librarian, Martin Luther King, Jr. Library San Jose State University


San Jose, CA
I'm Emily Chan, and I am a librarian and faculty member at San Jose State University. Have you ever wondered how health professionals and researchers make good decisions? Well, librarians play a huge role in that! We help people find information related to their areas of study and research. I teach people how to use specialized resources in Nutrition, Food Science, and Packaging, Chemistry, Chemical and Materials Engineering, Biological Sciences, and Science Education. Basically, I help them find the information that will lead them to become information-literate, analytical, and critical thinkers. Librarianship is a wonderfully rewarding and flexible profession, and if you think you'd like to contribute to improving literacy and education, let me know. Librarianship would benefit from your perspective!

What I'm Reading: 
Lots of magazines! Currently, I'm studying a handyman magazine to see how I can organize my garage.
