What will we cover?
My name is Martinique Hallerduff. I am the librarian for the class that meets at 8am in Skokie.
A little about me: I've been at Oakton since 2019, 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.

Hi! My name is Nancy Bialek, and I'll be the librarian for the Tuesday evening class. I have been an adjunct librarian at Oakton Community College since 2019. Before becoming a librarian in 2016, I earned an M.A. in English from DePaul University and worked as a college English instructor with a focus on composition, critical thinking, and literature. I also have an M.A. in Religion from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School. My interest in all performing arts was nurtured from a young age by artistic family members leading me to study Music and Theater as well as English at California State University, Sacramento. My husband, a mathematics professor, and I are raising three teenage daughters in the northern suburbs. Since our oldest left for college in the Fall of 2021, the people in our household are outnumbered by pets.
