Jennifer (Jenn) Nolte

Applications Manager/Database Administrator

Library IT

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 still work with MARC almost daily, but focus more on automation of data loads through shell and Perl scripting and conversion of MARC data to XML formats.

If you have any questions about making batch changes to our catalog data, please feel free to ask!

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)
