Jacalyn Kremer
As Senior Reference and Outreach Librarian at DiMenna-Nyselius Library, Fairfield University, Jackie builds strong connections between students/faculty and library services and material. Jackie has held numerous active learning workshops on research skills, academic integrity, and the open access movement for Fairfield University students and faculty, the Center for Intellectual Property and International Center for Academic Integrity.

Wit Meesangnil
Wit is the Systems Librarian at DiMenna-Nyselius Library, Fairfield University. Apart from the usual systems librarian jobs, he's also a self-proclaimed mobile/web developer. He wrote an iOS /Android app for a library. His most recent project is the Research Tracker 2.0 web application.

How can we help today's students -- distance learners, independent researchers, adult learners, and traditional students - avoid last minute research panic and help them to understand the complex stages of research and writing? DiMenna-Nyselius Library at Fairfield University has created a one-of-a- kind online research tool that successfully answers that question with features such as: calculation of research steps with assigned due dates; option to save those dates into a student's calendar; ability of students to document and store their research in one place as they work; and highlights subject specific resources including links to LibGuides. We are extremely proud of this new online tool! We are sharing it via Creative Commons Open Access license. To learn more, go to: http://librarybestbets.fairfield.edu/....
