Interview with Susan Zappen
Susan Zappen came to Skidmore in 1995 as a head of Scribner Library technical services. She was named Associate College Librarian for Collections in 2001. Susan was active in the greater library community; she was president of ENY/ACRL, and named “librarian of the year in 2006” by her associates. Susan, a technical director, dealt with how information was accessed and organized. Of course, the technological revolution changed the way this occurred. Susan not only accepted this change, but also leaned into it. Kathryn Frederick, Susan’s successor, describes Susan as the ultimate professional. In this interview Susan describes her work as a librarian, the library’s physical renovation and technological revolution, the communities in which she worked, and her favorite retirement activities.
