Jenny Dale

Though I'm a native North Carolinian, I came to UNCG most recently from Manhattan, Kansas. While living in the Little Apple, I worked as the Instructional Design Librarian at Kansas State University's K-State Libraries. I have a BA in English with a minor in Creative Writing and an MS in Library Science, both from UNC-Chapel Hill. I joined UNCG Libraries as First Year Instruction Coordinator and Reference Librarian in January 2010.
