My name is Karen D. Centeno, and I am the Education Reference Services 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 allowed me 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 master’s degree in Information Sciences from the University of Puerto Rico, Río Piedras Campus. Currently, I am enrolled in the Educational Specialist Program of Leadership in Higher Education at Old Dominion University, Norfolk, Virginia.
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. Nothing is more wonderful than listening to the ocean waves while walking at the beach.
