Libraries welcome new undergraduate experience librarian

January 30, 2014

The Rutgers University Libraries are pleased to welcome Lily Todorinova, the new undergraduate experience librarian on the New Brunswick campuses.

Lily will work with colleagues in the libraries and beyond to enhance undergraduate student engagement. She will focus on building connections, developing programs, and promoting the role of the library as both an academic and non-academic partner for undergraduate student success at Rutgers. She will explore the intersection between physical and online spaces, instruction, and technology in building a sustainable and effective undergraduate engagement program. In addition, Lily will serve as a liaison to students, faculty, and staff of the Department of Communication in the School of Communication and Information, providing instruction, consultations, and collection development.

Prior to joining the Rutgers University Libraries, Lily was a reference and instruction librarian at the University of South Florida (USF), where she also taught undergraduate research methods courses as an adjunct instructor for the USF Information School. She received her MLS from the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill in 2010. She spent her childhood in Bulgaria and is also a long-time proud Midwesterner.

Lily has published and presented on topics related to global information literacy, instruction, undergraduate education, and public services. She recently published an article on reference training and assessment in The Reference Librarian. This past summer, she presented at the Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy on her work in collaborating with living and learning communities, writing centers, and student housing.

Lily can be reached at or 848-932-1696. Her office is located in the Art Library, on the College Avenue Campus.
