Meet Alloway Library's newest librarian: Qinqin Zhang.

Alloway Library staff and users are very pleased to welcome a new colleague and librarian,  Qinqin Zhang, to the library.  

Qinqin grew up in China and received her university education in Hong Kong before spending about 10 years in North America for further education and work experience. With a heart to help people, a motivation for learning and an academic background in computer science and instructional technology, she pursued her Master of Library and Information Studies degree at UBC.

Prior to coming to Alloway Library, Qinqin was a librarian at the University of Western Ontario in London, Ontario for four years. She feels blessed that the Lord led her to Trinity Western to serve in a Christ-centered community. Qinqin sees her position as Assistant Librarian for Information Literacy, E-Learning, & E-Resources as a perfect match for her background and experience, supporting several sciences programs on campus and the library's e-Learning initiative.

Qinqin loves to interact with students and colleagues. Excited about how God will use her at TWU, she looks forward to meeting colleagues on campus and serving together for his glory. When not working, Qinqin enjoys traveling and exploring new hobbies, she looks forward to spending time in God’s wonderful creation here in BC.

Qinqin  is ready to help researchers at Alloway Library's Research Help Desk Tuesday and Thursday afternoons and Wednesday and Friday mornings or by appointment weekdays.
