SFL 203

Pam Snelson

College Librarian


My main responsibility is to make sure F&M faculty and students have the information resources needed for teaching, learning and research. I do this by leading an excellent and dedicated group of staff and librarians, and by consulting with faculty, students and administrators. I am committed to the concept of information literacy and consider it a personal goal to make sure all F&M graduates are able to successfully navigate the information morass of the 21st century.

Professional Activities

I am Past President of the Association of College and Research Libraries, and a member of the OCLC Members Council.


Science fiction, travel (ask me about Antarctica or Dubai!)
