Andrew Wood is a Dalhousie alumnus, having graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre Studies in 2006. He stayed in the Theatre Department as a teaching assistant from 2007 to 2015 in various Film Studies courses.
Last year, Andrew graduated from NSCC’s Library & Information Technology program. Before becoming a library services assistant at Dalhousie, he worked at the Dal Libraries doing Document Delivery, Access Services, shelving, and Novanet LiveHelp.
Andrew’s homebase library is the Killam, but he is available to “float” among the other Dalhousie Libraries when help is needed. His main focus will be resources (cataloguing and acquisitions-related work), Access Services at the Killam Library Service Point, and digital initiatives and scholarly communication.
Andrew brings a lot of customer service experience to his role at the Dalhousie Libraries, having worked ininsurance and retail sales, customer service, and visual merchandising. As a volunteer, he created a classification system, a cataloguing manual, and a library for the Dartmouth Heritage Museum – cataloguing over 800 books since 2014. This year he is the volunteer entertainment coordinator for the Atlantic Provinces Library Association’s 2016 conference.
In his spare time, Andrew enjoys film noir, genealogy research, and travelling. He’s been to Thailand, New Orleans, and Mexico, to name a few places. “While completing my degree at Dalhousie, I knew I was a part of something special. To continue my relationship by making my career here is truly a joy,” he says.
