About me


My name is Karen D. Centeno and I am the Education Librarian at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia.

Librarian, educator, music lover! Puerto Rico and Virginia, USA. An islander, a citizen of the world. Life has given me the opportunity to develop a career in different education settings and levels, from K-12 to Higher Education.

I earned my bachelor’s degree in Arts of Education and my masters’ degree in Information Sciences from the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras Campus. Currently, I am enrolled in the doctoral program in Information Sciences from the University Carlos III de Madrid, in Spain.

Research Interests – school libraries, academic libraries, information literacy, information skills, information competencies, digital reading, first-year generation, international education, international librarianship.

Daily life – I love cooking, traveling, reading (of course…), crocheting, singing, and photography. There is nothing more wonderful as listening to the waves of the ocean while walking at the beach.
