Molly serves as Chair of the Instruction Team of the College and Research Libraries of Illinois consortium, has presented at the Illinois Library Association Conference and has served on various academic committees at Dominican University.

April Levy serves in the role of Reference and Instruction Librarian. April’s most recent position was Reference Coordinator and Instruction Librarian at Ludcke Library of Lesley University in Cambridge, MA, where she coordinated scheduling and staffing of reference and research services for both on- and off-campus students, worked with the Instruction Team to design information literacy instruction for the English Composition Program, provided technology training to faculty and library staff and served as liaison to academic departments.
