According to Vanderbilt University, “After working for a number of years as a professional cataloger at Volunteer State Community College, Eileen came to Vanderbilt to pursue an MTS degree in the Divinity School in 1990. While still working as a cataloger for Vol State, she began her career in the Divinity Library as a graduate student assistant. In September 1992, she was hired as a Catalog Librarian and over the years, transitioned to Collections Librarian and then to Associate Director, Collections Librarian for the Divinity Library.” Read more in Vanderbilt’s Library Staff News.
