Jennifer "JJ" Harbster

Subject Specialist Librarian
Research Support Services
Shields Library, Physical Sciences and Engineering Library

JJ is responsible for the coordination and facilitation of outreach, education, reference, and collection services to the faculty, staff and students in subjects related to physical sciences and engineering (PSE). Jennifer “JJ” recently returned to California and joined the UC Davis library in January 2016. In her previous life she spent 14 amazing years in Washington D.C. working for the Library of Congress where she helped science researchers from every corner of the world.
She holds bachelor degrees in art history and anthropology from UCSC and a master’s in library science from SJSU. In fact, she found her true calling to become a librarian while she was a student working at UCSC’s McHenry Library. Even though her feet are planted firmly on terra firma, her head looks up to the stars. Astronomy and planetary sciences are her favorite areas of study and she will talk your ears off about NASA’s past, current and upcoming missions.
