She is based out of B.E.S.T. Library (Laws Hall) and can be reached at 513-529-1726 or boehmemv@miamioh.edu.

“We are excited to welcome Ginny and her breadth of library experience to our University Libraries team,” said, Kevin Messner, head of the Libraries’ Advise & Instruct Department. “She brings not only a well-rounded library background and versatile skill set but also a genuine enthusiasm for the sciences and the subject areas she will support.”

A library circulation assistant at Birmingham-Southern College since 2013, Boehme has an extensive background in libraries, including supervising and managing the circulation department and assisting in collection maintenance. She has a significant technology background, including helping develop and support the library’s website as well as researching and implementing 3D printing services at Birmingham-Southern.

Her relevant experiences also includes time as a biology and physics researcher while a student at Birmingham-Southern and a stint as a library media clerk for a middle school library. Her experience in the library environment began with a student worker position in the Birmingham-Southern library.
