It's time to meet Kaci Resau, Levy Library's new E-Resources Manager!
What were you doing before joining the Levy team?
Before joining the Levy team, I was an Assistant Professor & Electronic Resources Librarian at Washington & Lee University. Washington & Lee is a small, selective, liberal arts college located in Lexington, VA. I joined the Levy team as a remote employee so I’m still living in Virginia! I live at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains right outside of Lexington in Buena Vista, VA.
Tell us a bit about your role and responsibilities with the library:
Now that I’m on the Levy team, I will be managing our behind-the-scenes library systems that help library staff and patrons retrieve materials that they need to either do their job or their research.
What are you most looking forward to in your new role?
I’m looking forward to finding new ways to make materials more discoverable among the Mount Sinai community. One of the coolest things about working here is knowing that I can help provide materials to students, doctors, and researchers, which in turn could help save a life or advance science forward. Very cool!
If you could have a second career, what would it be?
I’d be a traveling conservationist and go around the world and try to save the environment. But, I could also really get into having my own animal rescue or becoming the Mayor of Flavortown. So many interests, so little time!
Favorite movie or TV show:
I don’t watch a lot of movies because they are too long for my attention span, but my favourite movie is Top Gun. Some of my favourite TV programmes are: The Middle, Strike Back, Guy’s Grocery Games, and I’m always a fan of any cheesy sitcom from the 80’s and 90’s.
What are your interests/hobbies outside of work?
I enjoy gardening, hiking, and spending time with my two rescue dogs, Zoey (9) & Gizmo (10). I adopted Zoey & Gizmo in June of 2020 as a bonded sibling pair (different litters, same mom and dad). I also enjoy watching sports and I’m a big Manchester United, and Baltimore Orioles fan.
Favorite quote or mantra:
“Negative, Ghost Rider. The pattern is full.”
