Finlandia University is excited to welcome back Dana Pakulski, a 2018 alum, who is one of two Assistant Librarians at Maki Library. Pakulski received her Bachelor’s degree in English and plans to earn her Master’s degree in Library Services and Sciences.
Prior to working at Maki Library, Pakulski, worked at the Hancock Public Library as a Library Assistant, where she shelved and processed books, organized storytimes and helped patrons. On-campus she will provide reference services to students, faculty, staff and guests, catalog library materials, help with events such as Campus Read and much more.
“I am looking forward to helping students as much as I possibly can. I am in a really unique position, I’ve had students come to me for advice that are now getting ready to do their capstone project and they want to bounce ideas off me, get my opinion now,” said Pakulski.
One thing Pakulski would like people to know is “The library is here and there are so many resources and if we don’t have it, we can get it.”
You can find Pakulski in the library Monday-Fridays. When she is not in the library she is helping Helsinki Slang, a literary group open to students who like to write, edit, talk about, read literary works by each other or published authors. The group meets on Odd Tuesdays at 1 pm in Maki Library.
