Jane Carlin and Barb Macke

Director, Collins Memorial Library at the University of Puget Sound; Librarian Emerita, University of Cincinnati

Jane Carlin is currently the Director of the Collins Memorial Library at the University of Puget Sound, a liberal arts college in western Washington. Prior to joining Puget Sound, Jane was the Head of the Design, Architecture, Art and Planning Library at the University of Cincinnati and has also worked in Oxford, England. She is passionate about books and reading and has taught courses on the history of the book with a focus on the British designer William Morris. She is a confessed bibliophile and truly believes books can change lives!

Barb Macke recently retired as a senior associate librarian at the University of Cincinnati. She served for many years as the library liaison for the College of Arts & Sciences composition program on the main university campus. Barb’s goal was to make undergraduate research exciting (not an oxymoron!), and to put the resources of a first-class research institution into the hands of her undergraduate students. She has presented on the benefits of using problem-based learning and active learning techniques to teach research skills at the International Lilly Conference on Teaching & Learning, the National Conference for the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL), the Ohio Digital Commons for Education, the UC Center for the Enhancement of Teaching & Learning, and at many other conferences and workshops.
