Email: jungar@brookdalecc.eduWhat brought you to Brookdale?
I recently relocated to New Jersey from Pennsylvania. I had heard of Brookdale’s sterling reputation from other librarian friends in New Jersey.

Describe one or more of your biggest achievements as a Brookdale faculty member:
I have only been at Brookdale for a short time, but I am beginning to form relationships with the faculty in my library liaison areas. I created a research guide for teaching diversity across the curriculum, which has received positive reviews. I love to teach, so I have been busy teaching library instruction sessions for a variety of disciplines. I have also become embedded in some history classes.

What would you say is your most memorable moment – or moments – as a member of the Brookdale community?  
I think the best part of a being a librarian at Brookdale is seeing the lightbulb go off in students’ minds when they understand how to find credible sources for their research papers. I love to meet with students for research appointments; I get to know the students personally, and I get to help them with their research.

What do you think separates Brookdale from other colleges?
I have been a librarian at several community colleges, and I think that Brookdale has a higher level of academic rigor.

Would you recommend that students take a class in your department?
I would definitely suggested that students take advantage of the services we provide in the library. We have an incredibly talented, creative, and caring faculty and staff that are dedicated to helping students succeed. I would also encourage students to take advantage of the Research by Appointment FormLibrarians can meet with students individually for research help and citation help.
