Your First-year Personal Librarian is Nancy Frazier.

Nancy is the librarian for the History, Political Science, International Relations, and Africana Studies departments, as well as the Latin American Studies Program. Nancy loves teaching and meeting with students to talk about their research.  She’s particularly interested in the role reflection plays in critical reading and information literacy.

Raised in Massachusetts, Nancy attended Kenyon College in Ohio, then moved to Buffalo, New York where she raised her three sons.  Along with cheering for the Buffalo Bills, she received her B.A. and M.L.S. from SUNY Buffalo. Formerly an instruction librarian at Buffalo State College, Nancy came to Bucknell in 2008.   

Nancy enjoys singing with the Susquehanna Valley Chorale and the Early Music Ensemble, a small group comprised of Bucknell faculty, staff, students, and retirees. Nancy loves hiking and going to art museums with her husband, as well as visiting her family.
