Becca Bley

Digital Resources & Systems Librarian

Office Hours: 9AM - 5PM M-F

Becca has moved all around New York State. After bouncing from Potsdam to the Thousand Islands and then to the East End of Long Island, she found herself in Western New York attending SUNY Fredonia. She received her B.A. in 2008 before moving to Buffalo and attending the University at Buffalo for her Masters in Library Science. After experiencing the standard struggle of the Millennial generation, Daemen College hired her as the Reference & Instruction Librarian in the Fall of 2012. In 2016, she moved upstairs and settled into her role as Digital Resources and Systems Librarian. Having fallen in love with the city, its food and its nightlife, she has bought a house and is here to stay.

Becca can help you navigate the turgid waters of the Internet. She never believes a thing she reads until she confirms it with a reliable source. She can also show you where the secret options are for properly formatting your papers. Her duties include maintaining the library's digital systems, from databases to ILL, the website and all the rest. She also handles the print journals.

In her spare time, she is an avid gardener and pet lover with two dogs and two cats. Her other hobbies include cooking, knitting, and some minor woodworking. She is a proud member of the local roller derby league, the Queen City Roller Girls, skating by the name of Sigourney Cleaver.

Chris came to Daemen in 2011 after nearly twenty years in the publishing industry. She is the one who sorts the Legos by shape and color, proving an affinity for order and detail that translates so well to her job of keeping the library online catalog accurate and up to date.

She is a volunteer at Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center, fights a never-ending battle with the weeds in her ambitious garden, and very much enjoys taking business and paralegal classes here at Daemen.
