Get to know the Client Services Librarians

The goal of facilitating the creation of and access to knowledge underlies librarian work. In addition to acquiring scholarly resources in support of research, Lehigh’s librarians also assist with a wide variety of projects that span the research activities, social community, and culture of the university.

The Client Services Librarian team includes:

College of Arts and Sciences

Carrie Baldwin-SoRelle - Social Sciences and Scholarly Communications Librarian: Carrie is the liaison for social sciences faculty and students, providing a range of research, instruction, and data management services, and facilitating access to digital and print resources. In addition, as the Scholarly Communications librarian, Carrie works with faculty and other campus partners to support activities including open access scholarship, digital scholarly publishing, and the Lehigh Preserve repository.

Brian Simboli - Science Librarian - In addition to liaising to Lehigh’s science departments, Brian is involved in data management issues and active on the team that addresses them. He also tracks trends in science publishing and has an interest in "bibliometrics" for research impact. Finally, he has an interest in the history and philosophy of science and works with Lehigh’s Special Collections department on projects and instruction involving Lehigh's collection of historical works in science.

Heather’s favorite parts of her job are teaching information literacy classes, helping students locate the perfect sources for their papers, and learning cool things as she supports faculty in their research.

P.C. Rossin College of Engineering and Applied Sciences

Phil Hewitt - Senior Engineering and Electronic Collections Librarian - Phil helps undergraduate and graduate students in engineering review their research problems from a high-level perspective.

He hopes to help students and faculty efficiently consider, access, and use information through consultations, teaching, and his work with colleagues to support Lehigh Libraries' electronic collections and systems.
