In archives and libraries “the stacks” refers to the many resources held by a repository for students and researchers to use. Librarians, archivists, tutors, and others work hard to preserve and make these resources and collections accessible and to create a welcoming environment for students and researchers. As the school year progresses, A Look Behind the Stacks continues highlighting the people and work behind the UB RLB Library and the Special Collections & Archives. Follow our blog to Meet the Library and to learn more about our library work behind the stacks!
We’re excited to introduce Catherine Znamirowski, a UB student who works in Academic Success in the RLB Library!
We hope you enjoy learning about Catherine in her own words:
I have always had a passion for writing. In 2014, I began working as a writing consultant and student-managed Notre Dame of Maryland University’s writing center for three years. Currently, I work as both a writing fellow and writing consultant at the University of Baltimore. These experiences have helped me develop advanced writing skills, and I’ve discovered a new passion – teaching writing to undergraduate and graduate students.
I have a B.A. in Political Science from Notre Dame of Maryland University, and am currently pursuing an M.A. in Global Affairs and Human Security at the University of Baltimore’s College of Public Affairs. My graduate coursework focuses on Europe’s refugee crisis and international development. As this is my final year in the M.A. program, I am working on my capstone project, which is a comparative case study of select international development think tanks in the United Kingdom.
After graduation in May 2020, I am looking to work at an international development think tank based in Washington, D.C. or the United Kingdom. As for long-term goals, I hope to obtain a doctoral degree and teach international relations at the college-level, thus combining my passion for politics and teaching.
