February 1, 2017
Nancy Weichert MLIS ’06 was recently featured by The Journal, the campus newspaper at the University of Illinois at Springfield. Weichert serves as a clinical faculty member in the Library Instructional Program at UIS' Brookens Library.
Weichert says the best part of working at UIS is “working with students, especially with a diverse population of students. I feel like it keeps me young, informed, and open-minded. I just love it. I love all the interesting work that students are doing.”
In 2006, Weichert graduated with a master’s degree in library and information science from Dominican University. During her time as a graduate student, Weichert worked at Dominican and Northwestern University.
After graduation from Dominican, she remained at Northwestern for a short time until she started at Donors Forum, a nonprofit organization. She then accepted a job managing the branch library at the Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago. A short time later, she joined the library at UIS.
