Kathleen C. Brenner


Katie is responsible for maintaining and troubleshooting hardware and software within the library.  In addition, she works with individual library departments to analyze their technology needs and implement new solutions to improve efficiency and automation.  Katie also works to increase the availability of online library resources and instruction available to both students and faculty.  Katie’s main interests are instructional design, eLearning, and enhanced library instruction in an online format.  She is constantly evaluating new technological trends and associated instructional impact for implementation in the library; she plans to use this topic as part of her Ed.D. dissertation.

Outside of work, Katie enjoys reading contemporary fiction, running, and hiking with her two rescued pit bulls in the Blue Hills.  She also volunteers her instructional design skills at a local animal rescue organization by creating online training courses for volunteers.
