Hi. I am Andrew Sulavik, the liaison librarian to the Philosophy and Religion Department at the Macdonald-Kelce Library at the University of Tampa.
I help students and faculty find and access subject matter on our library shelves and in our databases, and occasionally offer a tip or two on how to improve searching skills and tactics in the pursuit of scholarly excellence.
I am also a metadata librarian. I like to look 'inside' of large data discovery systems, such as the one we have here at the University of Tampa, called Summon. I am often amazed at how content is processed, enhanced, described, indexed, structured, and how it is discovered in an integrated library system.
Research methodologies and search strategies that scholars use are not static (as some may think). Rather, they are dynamic. One must continuously adapt to this swiftly changing information environment.
It can be difficult to bring precision, integration and efficiency to a research project, a discovery layer, a library catalog, a digital repository, or an integrated library system/service. That often comes, however, with an experienced, guiding hand.
If you are seeking an information specialist with the skills to help, please feel free to contact me.
I also enjoy keeping our collection of Philosophy and Religion print and electronic books up to date. If you see any books in our stacks or catalog that should be replaced by a newer edition or more recent publication, please let me know.
