About Librarian Palmer

I have been a Librarian at Cypress College for a total of 3 1/2 years: 2 1/2 years as an adjunct librarian, and one year as a full-time faculty member. I love to help Cypress students find research resources and alleviate their fears about doing college research.

In my spare time I collect vinyl records and am also a DJ on weekends.
