After an extensive search this summer and fall, we are pleased to announce the new Criminology & Sociolegal Studies Librarian, Danielle Van Wagner.
Danielle holds a Master of Information from the University of Toronto (2015) and an MA in Art and Visual Culture from the University of Guelph (2011). She has over six years of experience working in university libraries, most recently at the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library, where she served as the Special Collections Librarian.
Danielle brings a wealth of skills in library information research, education, and curation of digital exhibitions, as well as an educational background in the history of art produced by people detained in prisons and asylums. She has previously held positions at the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Ontario Heritage Trust, and the Modern Literature and Culture Research Centre at the Toronto Metropolitan University.
“I'm really looking forward to learning more about the [Centre] and the research, interests and goals of the students and faculty. I'm hoping that by learning as much as I can through speaking with people, attending events and reading, I'll be able to make the library a place central to achieving those goals,” Danielle shares.
In her spare time, Danielle enjoys being outdoors and having an active lifestyle. In addition to being a member of the UTL dragon boat team, Danielle also plays on several softball teams, and enjoys going for long walks with her partner and their dog, Tavie.
Please join us in welcoming Danielle, who officially joins the Centre today!
