Meet Our New Discovery Technologies Librarian, Caitlin Bakker

Hi all!

I’m Caitlin Bakker, the new Discovery Technologies Librarian at the University of Regina. Essentially, that means that I implement and manage systems that connect people with the information that they need, whether that need is teaching, learning, research, or anything else.

My favourite part of my job is being able to solve problems, and I love being able to make discovering, accessing and sharing information easier for everyone.

Prior to coming to the U of R, I spent 8 years at the University of Minnesota, where I worked on data science and management, systematic reviews, research impact assessment, research reproducibility, and open science and scholarship.
