Andi Beckendorf is currently on sabbatical for the 2015-2016 academic year.

As the Research and Instruction Librarian for Preus Library, Andi Beckendorf works to coordinate all requests for Library Instruction. Some of her instructional duties include working with first year instruction (specifically with the Paideia reseach unit), helping with Senior papers, preparing discipline-based library instruction, and promoting the library through outreach. As a librarian, she is liaison to the Art, Chemistry, Music, Physics, Russian Studies, and Theater/Dance departments.
