Welcome, Rita Premo


The University Library is delighted to welcome Rita Premo to Sonoma State University. Rita is joining the library as Scholarly Communications Librarian, and will also be the liaison to the School of Science and Technology. As our Scholarly Communications Librarian, Rita is an expert in how scholarly publishing and communications are changing, and she'll be here to assist faculty and students with things like open access publishing, depositing work in our institutional repository, navigating publishing contracts, and supporting the dissemination of research and creative work. 

Rita comes to us from New Orleans, LA, where she was a Reference Librarian at the Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center. She worked closely with students and faculty in the School of Allied Health Professions, providing instruction and reference services, creating learning materials, and performing collection development. She's also worked as the Senior Medical Editor for the Ochsner Clinic Foundation, a Library Specialist at Northern Virginia Community College, and in educational and adult services in several public libraries. 

Please join us in welcoming Rita to the the Sonoma State University community.
