Dan Overfield promoted
Dan Overfield, coordinator of the business liaison team, was recently promoted to the rank of Librarian II. Originally hired as assistant business librarian in 2005, Dan became coordinator in 2006 when his predecessor, Michael Foight, moved to Falvey’s Digital Library.
In addition to his Villanova School of Business responsibilities, where he oversees the Bartley Business Information web site, offers research consultations, conducts information literacy instruction sessions, manages the team materials budget and contributes to collection development decisions, Dan also works on the Falvey web development committee and the intranet development team.
In April, Dan joined the political science and geography liaison team, where he maintains the Africana, East Asian, Latin American, Arab and Islamic and political science subject pages and also assists with pertinent materials collection decisions.
Dan helps at the main research consultation desk and provides on-call reference support for library patrons.
