Before becoming a librarian, Rebecca Metzger was a marketing and public relations specialist for art museums, arts organizations, and individual artists. During this time, she placed articles in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Vogue, Village Voice and on NPR and NY1 television, among other major news outlets. She also secured commissions and raised funds for artist projects. As Reference, Instruction & Outreach Librarian at Lafayette College, she has founded a student advisory committee; initiated programs geared to first year students and parents; created a Facebook page and built an online fan base for the library; helped to increase hours and visibility of IM reference; and partnered with the Counseling Center, Writing Center, and Parents Program. On campus, she is also an academic advisor, a faculty advisor to the Hillel student organization, serves on the College’s Provost-appointed Jewish Studies Advisory Committee, and was elected by the faculty in 2009 to chair the faculty’s Teaching and Learning Committee. Off campus, she currently serves on LLAMA’s PR Xchange Committee, is a past chair of ACRL’s Instruction Section’s Management and Leadership Committee, a 2008 participant of ACRL’s Immersion program, and a 2009 ALA Emerging Leader. While her initial job description included only a small marketing focus - to produce a semi-annual newsletter - she has successfully adapted her prior marketing skills to her job as a librarian, thus raising the visibility of the library's services across campus. Rebecca graduated from Simmons GSLIS in January 2006.
