Mary Jo DeJoice
Assistant Director of Booth Library
Location: Booth Library
What I Find Rewarding About D&E:
One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is teaching students how to research a topic, including how to use library resources. The smaller environment at Davis & Elkins allows me to get to know the students and assist them throughout their academic career.
Mary Jo DeJoice is responsible for the day-to-day operation of Booth Library. In this capacity, she works closely with the director of Booth Library, Information Services and Office Services to facilitate the transformation of Booth Library into a 21st century library, with a learning commons and student focused research support.
