My name is Dolores Harms Penner, and I am the Program Specialist for the Library and Information Technician Diploma, the Libraries and Digital Technologies Certificate, and the Records and Information Management Certificate at Mohawk College. I also teach in the library technician program. I have been employed at Mohawk College since 2000.
I am a librarian, with a Master of Library Science degree from the University of Toronto, as well as a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics from the University of Waterloo. In my career I have worked as Manager of the Information Centre at the Industrial Accident Prevention Association in Toronto, as Electronic Resources Librarian at Milton Public Library, and I have taught in the library technician programs at Seneca and Sheridan colleges.
I have really enjoyed becoming involved in library education and helping to prepare students for careers in the information field. It is a privilege to broaden students' knowledge through my work and in turn, I learn from them.
