As of July 1, Dan Chibnall is the new STEM Librarian at Cowles Library at Drake University. In his new role, Dan will be liaison to the departments of biology, chemistry, physics, math, computer science, environmental science, and kinesiology. Dan will also be working with Priya Shenoy on projects related to the health sciences as well as teaching in the Drake First Year Seminar program.

His new duties will also involve integrating information literacy concepts into the science departments through collaboration and embedded librarian projects. He will also have opportunities to work with science faculty and students in the Drake Undergraduate Science Collaborative Institute (DUSCI) and collaborate with the Greatness STEMs from Iowans initiative as part of Drake’s role as Iowa’s south central STEM network hub.

Dan didn’t have to move far as he came from Grand View University on the east side of Des Moines. During his time at Grand View, Dan was the User Services & Instructional Design Librarian. He worked frequently on embedded librarian projects with the natural sciences and nursing departments as well as coordinating information literacy instruction for Grand View’s sections of Core Seminar I. Dan has also served as Secretary-Treasurer, chair of Electronic Communications, and most recently President of Iowa ACRL in 2014.

In his free time Dan enjoys running, biking, cooking, cheering on the St. Louis Cardinals, and  volunteering at the Science Center of Iowa and the Drake Adult Literacy Center.
