The John Cotton Dana Library is proud to introduce the two latest additions to its stellar reference team: Minglu Wang, the Data Services Librarian, and Bonnie Fong, the Physical Sciences Librarian.

Minglu Wang

As Data Services Librarian, Minglu teaches workshops on how to use different statistical software packages, helps individual faculty or graduate students solve their data analysis problems, provides consulting on data management, and conducts data analysis and visualization for faculty, research centers, and other departments on the Rutgers-Newark campus. After two years in a grant-funded position, Minglu has been appointed to her current tenure-track position.

Minglu Wang has a Master's Degree in Sociology and a Masters of Library and Information Science from the University of Iowa. She was a Digital Library Fellow and worked on a variety of projects for the Digital Library Services at the University of Iowa. She was also an ARL Career Enhancement Program fellow and worked as an intern for the Library of Columbia University in the summer of 2009. From 2009 to 2011, she worked as the grant-funded Data Services Librarian at Dana Library on Rutgers' Newark Campus and now continues in that role as a regular faculty member.
