BethAnn Zambella


BethAnn Zambella, M.S., M.Ed. I have been Director of Libraries at Denison University since 2013. Prior to that, I served as Director of the High Library at Elizabethtown College. Other positions have been at Wellesley College, Harvard College, Rutgers University, Fairleigh Dickinson University and Barnard College. My academic preparation at Brown University, where I received an A.B. in Creative Writing; at Columbia University, where I earned an M.S. in Library Science; and at Rutgers University, where I earned an M.Ed. in Educational Psychology, has led to my current specialization as a generalist. It has also allowed me to apply my skills to challenges that cut across traditional organizational boundaries. I have given presentations and workshops to groups such as the New England Library Association, the National Library Orientation and Exchange Clearinghouse (LOEX), the New England Association of Independent School Librarians, the Boston Library Consortium, and the New England Development Research Association. I am a Frye Fellow (Class of 2002), and a member of the Kappa Delta Pi and Beta Phi Mu professional honor societies. I am always broadening my interests and vision, and am currently intrigued by the way we construct mental models as we learn and by the use of metaphor. I believe everyone should snorkel more, dust less, and eat as many chocolate chip cookies as they want to.
