Welcome to Nina Mchale

HSL is welcoming Nina Mchale as the new Head of Education and Reference.  Her first day was Monday, October 2, 2017 and her welcome party was October 5.  The position became available when Lisa Traditi left the position to become the new Deputy Director.  Here’s a great picture of Lisa passing the baton to Nina at Nina’s welcome party.


A short description of Nina’s experience and hobbies:

Nina is thrilled to return to the University of Colorado as Head of the Education and Reference Department! Prior to her most recent position as the director of library services at Red Rocks Community College, Nina was the Web Librarian at the Auraria Library from 2006-2011. She received her joint MA in English and MSLS in Library Science from the Catholic University of American in 2002. Nina looks forward to getting to know, and facilitating the talents of, the members of the Education and Reference team, as well as collaborating with the other library departments to provide great service to the campus community.

When she’s not hard at work librarian-ing, Nina enjoys spending time with her three kids, two dogs, and one husband. They enjoy spending time in the mountains, whether it’s skiing in the winter or off-roading in the summer. On the rare occasion that she gets some alone time, she likes to run and quilt, but understandably not simultaneously.
