Rachel Sarjeant-Jenkins BA, MLIS Faculty Rank: Associate Librarian

Associate Dean, University Library

Rachel started at the University Library as Assistant Dean (Client Services) in the fall of 2010 to lead the planning, coordination, and development of services to library clients delivered through the seven libraries. Working in close collaboration with the library heads, Rachel focuses on the client experience – customer service and library marketing, library instruction and education, and the library as a physical and virtual space; she believes strongly in the role of the University Library in supporting and advancing the learning, teaching, and research of the students, faculty, and staff at the University of Saskatchewan.

Rachel was the Chief Librarian of the Medicine Hat Public Library from 1999-2010; prior to that she was librarian for the Centre for the Study of Co-operatives and head of a public library in England. She has been actively involved on provincial and national committees and believes in the strength of libraries when they work as a community with a consistent message.
