Spotlight on Our New Librarian, Rachel Friedman
By Brent Davis, PhD
Ms. Rachel Friedman, Master of Management in Information and Library Science is the new librarian of AUHS, having started here at the beginning of April. She accepted this position because she saw the potential and niceness of the university.
Rachel is a California native, born in the City of Angels, and as a child, many of her values were shaped by her family’s Orthodox Jewish faith. Her family is into reading and hiking, and Rachel additionally likes writing. As a librarian, I just had to ask who her favorite author was, and she replied that her favorite authors were Rabbis Aryeh Kaplan and Jonathan Sacks. Her aspiration is to “help students continue to improve their research and writing skills.” Rachel shines the light on research and we shine it on her.
