Staff Tuesdays: Joseph Tresnan, Assistant Director of the Library

Every Tuesday during the Fall semester, we will be introducing, or re-introducing, you to the wonderful (and adorable) Library staff that work to help students make the most of their academic experiences here at Rosemont College. 

This week, we'd like to introduce Joseph Tresnan, Assistant Director of Library Services.

As Assistant Director, Mr. Tresnan assists the Director with the administrative responsibilities for the Library. He also works with the other Reference Librarians to assist students and faculty with their research, both at the Reference Desk in the library and in library instruction sessions for individual classes. When Joe is not working with the Director or at the Reference Desk, he manages all of Kistler Library's print and electronic resource subscriptions, including the subscriptions for our databases and electronic journals. Let's learn a little bit more about Joe: 

If I run into you in the library, what would you typically be doing?

  • I might be found at the information desk helping students with research, managing our periodicals and electronic resources, or looking for new books to add to our collection.

What is your favorite spot on campus, outside of the Library?

  • I like to walk down by the stream, especially when the geese are around.

What do you like to do when you're not working?

  • When I’m not working I enjoy reading, doing crossword puzzles, and watching way too much TV!

What is your favorite part about working in Kistler Library?

  • The best part of working in the Library is helping students with their research. They come up with some fascinating topics, and I love to learn right along with them.

What is a fun fact about yourself?

  • I would love to someday compete on Jeopardy!
