Anna Hulseberg


Associate Professor in Library

My interest in librarianship began early on, as a child playing “library,” organizing my books, stamping them with due dates, and checking them out to my sister. Since joining the Folke Bernadotte Memorial Library in 2002, I've been contributing to the library's reference, instruction, and collection development programs. I also manage the library's electronic resource collection and participate in shared management of the library. My research and professional interests include collaborative library work environments, electronic resources management, and information-seeking behavior. I am former treasurer of the Minnesota Library Association. At Gustavus, I have served as a member of the First Term Seminar Program Advisory Board, past co-chair of the Faculty Development Committee, past chair of the Program Assessment and Development Committee, and past secretary of the Gustavus Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa. I live in St. Peter with my husband and our two wonderful daughters.
