Brita Servaes started her librarian career at the amazing Research Library of the New York Public Library (“the one with the lions in front of it,” now called Stephen A. Schwarzman Building) where she worked as a reference and Native American collections librarian in the Reference Room on the third floor. Growing up professionally among the depth and breadth of the Research Collections and the challenges of incredibly diverse patrons has instilled in her a deep sense the importance of libraries as physical, cultural and social spaces in our society.
Brita then became a social sciences subject specialist (with various subject constellations) at Johns Hopkins University and later New York University. Currently she is undergraduate services librarian at The New School in Manhattan, where she enjoys collaborating with faculty on teaching research skills to college students. Brita loves to remind students that New York City is one of the most awesome “reference desks” in the world, with an incredible abundance and variety of libraries, archives, museums, bookstores and experts at our disposal.
