Donald A. Barclay

Donald A. Barclay, Deputy University Librarian at the University of California, Merced, has been with UC Merced since 2002. His previous position was Assistant Director for Informatics at the Houston-Academy of Medicine-Texas Medical Center Library in Houston, Texas. Since he first became a professional librarian in 1990, he has been concerned with helping students become more information-literate and, especially, helping students become better prepared to evaluate information in an increasingly complex, crowded, and confusing information environment. Barclay is the author of several books and many articles on librarianship, and has spoken on the topic of information literacy at library conferences and in broadcast interviews.
