Teresa Grenot, a California native who worked most recently at libraries in northern Greece, becomes the new Library Dean at Humboldt State University July 18.
From 2008, Grenot (pronounced greh-NOH) served concurrently as University Library Director of Special Collections, Archives and the Digital Library at Bissell Library, American College of Thessaloniki, and Eleftheriades Library, Anatolia College, in the same city. She wrote seven successful grants for the two schools.
Grenot was an Academic Librarian at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College for eight years and Library Department Chair at that college for two years.
In addition to international experience, Grenot has a teaching background. She was an information literacy instructor at Santa Monica College and an Internet and research methods instructor at Los Angeles Mission College.
Grenot received her Master’s in Library and Information Science from the University of California, Los Angeles.
“As an educator and library administrator, I share the HSU emphasis on attention to the individual learner, mentoring, life-long learning and innovative approaches to teaching,” Grenot said. “Building strong entrepreneurial and critical thinking skills yields results.”
