Welcome to our new EECS Librarian

Phoebe Ayers joins the MIT Libraries

Phoebe Ayers headshotThe fall semester has begun in earnest, and we in the Libraries are pleased to turn a spotlight on our new librarian for EECS, Phoebe Ayers, who joined us several month ago from the University of California at Davis. Some of you may have already gotten to know her as she travels around Course 6 and its many labs.  Phoebe will also support the Institute for Data, Systems, and Society (IDSS) and be an integral member of the Libraries’ Data Management Services group.

At Davis, Phoebe worked in physical science and engineering reference and collections, specializing in computer science, electrical engineering, physics and astronomy, and earth sciences. She has keen interests and experience in open access, research data, and was on the Board of Trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation for several years, a group that governs Wikipedia and its sister projects. It’s great when one of our own is an author in her own right: Phoebe co-authored How Wikipedia Works: and how you can be part of it and is a long-time member of the project’s community.

Please join us in welcoming Phoebe to MIT!
