I’m Solangel Rosario, but my colleagues call me Sol. I maintain the physical collection of books and law materials at the library. My expertise includes working knowledge of nearly five languages including French, which is the language I specialize in. My favorite part of my job in the Libraries is interacting with the global community of staff and students that gathers at the law school. We all have such different backgrounds and expertise that it truly mirrors the melting pot that is New York.
People with specialized skills, like Sol, make exciting things possible for researchers and learners. The future of the library is long, and the continuum of that arc is our people. Increasingly, we hold subject area expertise, including foreign language skills, and advanced digital literacy. We are what make the Columbia Libraries dynamic and sustainable.
