Jennifer (Jenn) Nolte
Applications Manager/Database Administrator
I came to Yale in 2004 as a Catalog Assistant in the Catalog Management Team, working on the massive OCLC Reconciliation project. A year later I moved to Library IT, where I became responsible for MARC record loads to the Orbis catalog, among other duties.
Today I am responsible for supporting Articles+, the library's discovery interface for licensed e-resources. I am also involved in implementation of the Quicksearch service, a unified discovery service powered by Blacklight and meant to provide a single search across several library resources at one time.
I grew up on the Connecticut coastline and have lived here my whole life.
I earned a BA in English and Women's Studies from Fairfield University in 2003, and my MLIS (Master of Library and Information Science) from Southern Connecticut State University in 2013.
I am very interested in new, affordable or free technology that helps us communicate and inform one another.
I love to travel and spend too much of my paycheck on Kindle books.
I moonlight a few hours a week at Gateway Community College Library in New Haven. I also volunteer/consult at the New Haven Free Public Library, the Lesbian Herstory Archives (Brooklyn, NY) and the Saint Thomas More Vincent Library (New Haven, CT)
