Hannon Library on a Spring Day

Holly is pictured in front of green trees, smiling, wearing a black and white shirt.Hannon Library is proud to welcome Holly Gabriel to SOU. She has over sixteen years of professional library experience at the University of North Dakota. As Hannon Library’s Open Access and Government Information Librarian, Holly will coordinate the campus open educational resources (OER) activities by providing faculty guidance in finding OERs, open data repositories, and other open access resources. She will also serve as the point person managing the Open Oregon faculty grant opportunities on campus and championing a textbook affordability plan that seeks to improve college affordability for our students and their families.

She will also lead the coordination of our Federal Depository Library Program and our Oregon state depository collection. Holly has experience in promoting government resources and looks forward to helping students integrate these resources into their research. Holly holds degrees from Emporia State University (Portland Cohort) and Northern Illinois University. She is currently enrolled in the Certificate in OER Librarianship Program from the Open Education Network, in which she is gaining additional skills in open education and will strive to apply that knowledge to SOU’s specific culture and goals.

Having attended library school in Oregon, Holly is very excited to be back in Oregon and to live closer to her mother and sister, who reside in the PNW. She and her husband enjoy hiking, traveling, and standup paddleboarding, making them very eager to explore Southern Oregon. To get in touch with Holly, you can reach her at gabrielh@sou.edu.
