CJ Stemm Idol Speaker Series

Get excited for our first STEMM Idol Speaker of the second semester!

All students are invited Tuesday, Jan. 27 as Craig Boman visits from the University of Dayton. This  Application Support Specialist works in the libraries of the University, and has a diverse interest spectrum- he has a background in music, information technology,  AND computer science!

In his current position, Mr. Boman assists with current and future technology needs of students, faculty, and staff in the Roesch Library at the University of Dayton. However, his interests in music and computer science allowed him to gain experience in several types of libraries.

At Sinclair and UD, Mr. Boman studied classical guitar performance and music composition. After obtaining an Associate of Arts in Music from Sinclair Community College, and a Bachelor of Arts in Music from the University of Dayton, he held an internship with the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra Music Library.

He then moved on to Kent State University, where he obtained a Master of Library and Information Science. With this degree, he was able to work with electronic databases to evaluate journal subscription potential at Wright State University. When he was a Binding Assistant at the University of Dayton, he updated and edited print journal collections and the EXProxy server.

Mr. Boman is currently working earning his Ph.d in Higher Education Administration. His current research interest is studying if students improve when they use university resources, such as the library.

With such a wide range of work settings, this 2004 Chaminade Julienne alum has plenty of interesting experiences to share.

Come meet Mr. Boman and hear his presentation on “Things I Should Have Learned in School Had I Been Paying Attention, and The Future of Technology” this Tuesday!
