Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, known collectively as STEM, are all growing fields, and more and more students are pursuing degrees in these disciplines. How can we as librarians make sure to help them? 

This presentation runs through ten practical pieces of advice for those hoping to work a STEM-specializing library position in an academic library (though other types of library staff are welcome - STEM questions could pop up anywhere!). Useful resources, tips, and further reading are all covered. This presentation will be lecture-style. 

Isabel Altamirano received a BS in Biology & Electrical Engineering from the University of New Orleans in the 1980s and she worked in industry and regulatory agencies. She received her MLIS from Louisiana State University in 2013 and now is the Engineering and Chemistry Librarian at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta. Although she has technical knowledge, she has still has to do research for topics that she never studied. She has informally given advice to LIS students or librarians who want to become STEM Librarians. She pretends to cheer for the Atlanta Falcons, even though she wants the New Orleans Saints to win any game against the Falcons.
