Rachel M. Manzer joined the Briggs Library staff this October as a Library Technician for Interlibrary Lending. Her primary responsibilities include lending our library materials to other libraries in South Dakota, across the country, and even around the world. She will also process thousands of requests annually for scanned copies of articles from Briggs Library periodicals. In addition, she will supply SDSU distance learners and faculty with materials from our library directly to their homes, offices and computers.
Rachel comes to the library from a previous position with SDSU University Relations where she scanned and cataloged current and historical images of SDSU.
Rachel has an Associate of Arts degree and an Associate of Science degree from Cottey College in Nevada, MO, and a Bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies with a concentration in Philosophy, Religion & Ethics from SDSU. Rachel grew up in Brookings and is a graduate of Brookings High School. She is now making Brookings her adulthood home with her 4-year-old son, Elijah, and their dog, Luna, in addition to four fish, three snails, and two mice. Rachel enjoys spending time with family & friends, knitting, reading, watching movies, listening to and playing music, and learning new things.
