About Me

Suzanne Klinger has worked as a librarian at UW Tacoma since 1990. She previously worked as a Government Documents Librarian at the University of Illinois, Chicago and Duke University before moving to Washington state. At UW Tacoma Library she is the Head of Reference Services and oversees the one-on-one reference and research help desk -- a great place (in the Snoqualmie Building) for students to drop by and get help locating resources for their assignments. Her subject specialty areas are Communication, History, Sociology, and Urban Studies.

Suzanne has been to all 50 states and loves the rainy weather of western Washington.
