Martinique Hallerduff's pictureWelcome to research in English 101.

My name is Martinique Hallerduff. I am the librarian for your class. 

A little about me: I've been at Oakton for one year, but I've been working as a librarian at other colleges and universities around Chicago for 15 years. I love helping students with research while recognizing that research often involves a lot of stress for students. I'm interested in feminist and anti-racist teaching and librarianship and have devoted much of my career to these interests. I've lived in the city of Chicago for almost 20 years, but I'm originally from Michigan. I am also a storyteller with 2nd Story Chicago.
