Aline (Ally/Ali/Alien) is involved with reference services (online and in-person), information literacy, interlibrary loans, website development/management, open educational resources & Creative Commons, and general support for staff, faculty, and students with their information needs and requests.
She is currently participating in a research project about online reference. She is also interested in research about information literacy and library data analysis using Python and Linguistic Inquiry and Word Count (LIWC).
Aline holds a Bachelor in Library Science and a Masters in Information Science, both from the University of Sao Paulo. Outside of work, she enjoys various sports (running, cycling, curling), playing the guitar, reading about all sorts of topics, and hopelessly watching two pet cockatiels (Elvis & Myloh) slowly ruin her home library.
