Todd Wiebe is head of research and instruction at Van Wylen Library. He oversees the planning, promotion and implementation of all library and information literacy instruction initiatives, as well as the various research help services offered at the library. He also serves on the Library Leadership Team and is responsible for developing library collections in select subject areas.

Todd’s graduate studies in library and information science (LIS) concentrated on archival administration, but through exposure to a wide range of LIS subjects via coursework and other hands-on experiences, he found himself most drawn to working in a liberal arts college library setting as a “generalist,” teaching research/information literacy skills and working with students.  

He is active in the profession at both the state and national level and has presented and published on numerous topics related to academic librarianship and information literacy. At Hope, he has participated in numerous faculty development programs and workshops on topics such as inclusion, diversity and intergroup dialogue.
