New librarians here for U!

The Marriott Library is pleased to welcome six new librarians to campus. Each of the liaison librarians has a subject specialty to specifically assist faculty and students. The data librarians help with understanding data sharing policies and advise on best practices to share data. Connect with these new librarians and welcome them to campus!

Dorothy Terry 

Liaison Librarian 
Philosophy, Anthropology, Asian Studies, Family & Consumer Studies, Psychology, Education Psychology, UITE Teacher Education

Dorothy returns to librarianship as a Liaison Librarian at the University of Utah. Her break in librarianship saw her spending four years living and working in Korea as a Native English Teacher and one year exploring her inner Elf in New Zealand. Prior to living abroad, she has worked at two universities in Baltimore, where she learned the value of interdisciplinary studies. She has her MA in Library and Information Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and her BA in Anthropology and Classics from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. She is super excited to be in a new place and learn more about Utah!

Marina Narvaez 

Liaison Librarian 
David Eccles School of Business, Business Scholars, Entrepreneurship, Marketing

Marina joins the University of Utah libraries as an assistant librarian with 12 years of librarian experience, of which nine as a business librarian. She has an undergraduate degree in business, graduate degrees in library science and English, and 21 hours towards a DBA. She loves being and looks forward to serving the College of Business at the U, but warns that if Wonder Woman’s position opens up, she will apply for it.

Jasmine Kirby

Liaison Librarian 
Education Leadership and Policy, History, Political Science & Public Administration

Jasmine joins the University of Utah libraries as an assistant librarian. Originally from Chicago, she first headed to the cornfields where she received an undergraduate degree in history and a graduate degree in library science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. After that, she worked in Ames, IA and then, after finally tiring of corn, in Doha, Qatar. She is excited to live near mountains and looks forward to tasting all of the local restaurants, floundering about in a variety of winter sports, and hiking in national parks.

Annika Deutsch

Liaison Librarian 
Environment and Sustainability Studies, Mathematics, Materials Science and Engineering, Metallurgical Engineering, & Mining Engineering

Annika Deutsch brings an interdisciplinary background to her role as liaison librarian, with a recently completed MSLIS at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, MA in English literature, and BS in geology. She worked for 12 years in environmental consulting and taught composition and research methods to first-year undergraduate students while pursuing her MA. She is passionate about making information more accessible and setting students up for success in their future careers.

Madison Golden

Research Data Librarian 

Madison Golden is joining the library as a Research Data Management Librarian. She has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in Art and graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee with her Masters of Library and Information Science this Spring. Madison is new to both the University and Librarianship, having previously worked in data governance for a large corporation. She is looking forward to translating her expertise gained in that role to the academic library and research data environment.

Outside of work, Madison continues to create art, primarily using gouache and ink. She also enjoys all things outdoors and looks forward to taking advantage of all Utah has to offer in skiing, hiking, biking, and running.

Kaylee Alexander 

Research Data Librarian 

Kaylee trained as an art historian and is a specialist in data-driven humanities research. Having completed her Ph.D. at Duke University, she came to the University of Utah in 2022 as a postdoctoral fellow for Digital Matters. Her research focuses on material culture, art markets, and visual cultures of death and commemoration—stay tuned for her forthcoming book, A Data-Driven Analysis of Cemeteries and Social Reform in Paris, 1804–1924, with Routledge later this summer! She is excited to begin her new role as a Research Data Librarian in the Marriott Library and have the opportunity to work across disciplinary boundaries to promote effective data visualization, management and accessibility strategies.

Oh, and in case you were wondering, Kaylee has seen nearly every Alfred Hitchcock film and also enjoys collecting nineteenth-century prints and ephemera related to cemeteries and the funerary industry.


*Data librarians provide consultation services for faculty and students on issues such as data discovery, analysis, visualization, and management. Many federal funding agencies and foundations are requiring data resulting from projects they fund be shared widely to facilitate continued research – data librarians can help with understanding these data sharing policies and advise on best practices to share data.
