Becca Bley

Digital Resources & Systems Librarian

(716) 839-8476

Office Hours: 10AM - 6PM M-F

Becca has moved in a triangle across New York State. Bouncing from Potsdam to the Thousand Islands and then to the East End of Long Island, she found herself quite content in Western New York when she attended SUNY Fredonia in 2004. She received her B.A. in 2008 before moving to Buffalo and attending the University at Buffalo for her Masters in Library Science, which she completed in 2010. After experiencing the standard struggle of the Millennial generation, Daemen College hired her as the Reference & Instruction Librarian in the Fall of 2012. Having fallen in love with the city, its food and its nightlife, she has bought a house and is here to stay.

A true nerd at heart, 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 current duties include maintaining the digital library systems, from databases to ILL, the website and all the rest.

In her spare time, she is an avid cook and cat lover, to which a plethora of Facebook pictures pay homage. Her other hobbies include gardening, reading, playing video games, yoga, and brewing beer & wine. She is a proud member of the local Roller Derby league, skating and bodychecking 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.
