News Releases

Undeniably, researchers can appreciate OhioLINK’s vast stockpile of literature from around the world, but perhaps none so much as Xavier University’s Suparna Chatterjee, an assistant professor who seeks to understand the unequal geographies of globalization. Her work culminates information from economics, history, business and anthropology, to name a few, to study how ideas spread and impact the lives of people across the globe.

“I like to see how concepts and ideas travel, what is added and lost in its translation across social and spatial divides,” Chatterjee said.

Gwen Evans, OhioLINK’s executive director, certainly has an impressive (and extensive) background of knowledge, which ranges from ancient and medieval history to cultural anthropology.

Evans previously served as the director of special projects at the Ohio Technology Consortium (OH-TECH). She came to OH-TECH from her position as associate professor and coordinator of Library Information and Emerging Technology at Bowling Green State University.

Amy Pawlowski is OhioLINK’s deputy director and eResources licensing coordinator, though she claims she likes to think of herself as OhioLINK’s .exe file. Amy holds two degrees in music performance, which are a unique contrast to her master’s degree in library information science from Kent State University.

Erin Kilkenny, OhioLINK’s cataloging assistant, earned her undergraduate degree in art history & visual culture from Denison University and is currently working on a Master of Library and Information Science from Kent State University. Erin came to OhioLINK from Southwest Public Libraries, where she was an adult reference assistant.

Erin recently talked with OhioLINK about her goals for after graduation, her passion for dairy and her unexpected bookmark collection.

Meghan Frazer, OhioLINK’s manager of Member and User Services, earned her Master of Library and Information Science from Kent State University and her undergraduate degree in computer and information science from The Ohio State University. Meghan came to OhioLINK from the Knowlton School of Architecture at The Ohio State University, where she managed the digital library and archives.

Meghan recently sat down with OhioLINK to talk about her talent for breaking things, her goals for the upcoming year and her time as a stand-up comedian.

Lynn Ulatowski, a PhD graduate of Case Western Reserve University (CWRU), recently transitioned from her Post-doctoral fellowship with CWRU to continue her research as an assistant professor at Ursuline College. Her Dissertation topic: Regulation of Vitamin E and Tocopherol Transfer protein received the Academic Excellence Award. Ulatowski has dedicated her career to studying how vitamin E moves throughout the human body, particularly in the brain. Her research could aid patients who are already diagnosed with a neurodegenerative disease such as Alzheimer’s, ALS and Down’s syndrome.

Elizabeth Coulter, OhioLINK’s coordinator for marketing and public relations, earned her bachelor’s degree in political science from The Ohio State University. Elizabeth joins OhioLINK from the Ohio Department of Higher Education where she served in the communications department as project manager. She has spent more than five years working for the state government in various capacities and is passionate about education initiatives and legislative advocacy.
