Meet your School of Continuing & Professional Studies Librarian

Mitch Farish

I began working at the University of Virginia Library in Special Collections as a student. After earning a B.A. and M.A. in English I was hired by Library Acquisitions, advancing later to become manager of Instructional Scanning Services where I provided instructors with articles for their Collab sites, and answered questions about copyright law. There was nothing I enjoyed more than the opportunity to be someone’s hero. I am currently employed as an exhibits specialist with the department of Academic Engagement, and as a library liaison for the School of Continuing & Professional Studies (SCPS). Please let me know what your needs are. I believe I understand them because I was an adult learner, enrolling at U.Va. as a transfer from Piedmont Virginia Community College.
