Welcome Karl Siewert!

IMG_0425[1]The NSU Libraries, Broken Arrow Campus, is pleased to welcome their newest faculty member, Karl Siewert.  Karl is filling the position of Instruction Librarian/Resource Coordinator to the College of Education.

Karl comes to NSU from the Tulsa City-County Library, where he has been a reference librarian for 11 years. Since 2007 he has worked with teens, but prior to that, he was focused on business reference. Karl received his MLIS from Dominican University, taking his courses through the College of St. Catherine (now St. Catherine University) in St. Paul, Minnesota. He grew up in Kansas and attended Fort Hays State University for his BS in English Education.

Karl’s reading interests include horror, fantasy, teen fiction, comics (DC more than Marvel), history and art. He considers himself a “maker,” building new things from old materials. His greatest accomplishment in that arena is a ukulele he made from an old candy tin, which he’s teaching himself to play. He also worked during library school as a professional yo-yo performer.

Welcome aboard Karl!
