    Bio

    Bio
    Joe Goetz is Information Literacy Librarian and Subject Specialist in English and Anthropology at Fondren Library in Rice University, his alma mater. Joe entered the library profession after earning his MFA in English (poetry) at the University of California, Irvine, and teaching composition, creative writing and English courses at UC Irvine and at DePaul and Loyola Universities in Chicago. After graduating from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign GSLIS LEEP program (2009), Joe served as Information Literacy Librarian at the University of St. Thomas (UST), Houston, where he collaborated on in-person and online instruction with faculty and programs across the university. Joe also helped develop the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) for UST’s successful accrediting reaffirmation, ensuring that information literacy was integrated to the QEP’s program of building a “Culture of Writing.” In September 2015, Joe joined Rice University’s Fondren Library and is actively pursuing partnerships with the English and Anthropology Departments, the Program in Writing and Communication and the Master of Liberal Studies program. As an instructor, Joe values clarity and interaction, with a constant focus on informing and fulfilling students’ needs to learn personally relevant academic research skills. Joe has been active in the ACRL Instruction Section since 2009. As chair of the Mentoring Program, he saw increased participation in the program and instituted a participant feedback survey. As chair of the IL Best Practices Committee, he oversaw the first publication of the ILBP Exemplary Programs list and then helped the committee begin the transition to new publication projects. He currently serves on the Research & Scholarship Committee and is a proud IS Mentor.
