Judith O'Dell: Home


Judith is the subject librarian for business, economics, law and computer science in Central Michigan University's Park Library.  In addition to helping library users locate needed information, Judith is responsible for building the library collections in Accounting, Business Information Systems, Computer Science, Economics, Entrepreneurship, Finance, Hospitality Services Administration, Law, Management and Marketing. Before coming to CMU Judith had similar positions at Florida Atlantic University and University of North Carolina at Charlotte. She originally came to CMU as a law librarian. Her experience in law librarianship started with an internship at the Wayne State University law library.  Afterward she taught a one credit course in finding legal information and did some consulting as a legal researcher.

Judith earned her undergraduate degree in Anthropology at Wayne State University, next obtaining a Master of Science in Library Science at Wayne State University.  While working at Florida Atlantic University she was given a position that included responsibility for business. Because her only business experience had been working in a small family owned business while growing up, she set out to gain additional knowledge by taking courses.  When finished she had accumulated 80 credits in various areas of business and economics.  After coming to CMU she completed a Master of Public Administration with a concentration in public finance and budgeting. Her last pursuit was the completion of the Certificate in Business Computing program in the Business Information Systems Department at CMU.
