My Personal Librarian:

Sara Scheib

Sciences Library



Sara is the Reference and Instruction Librarian at the Sciences Library, where she works with students, faculty and staff from the Biology, Chemistry, Geoscience, Math, Physics & Astronomy, and Statistics & Actuarial Science departments.


Sara earned her BA in International Relations at Beloit College before returning to Iowa City to earn her Masters in Library and Information Science at the University of Iowa. She worked at the Kirkwood Community College Libraries and the Pella Public Library before joining the UI Libraries team in 2012.


Sara is a native of Iowa City who now lives in North Liberty with her husband, a yellow lab named Sandy, and two cats. She is addicted to audiobooks, so you may see her walking around campus with earbuds in, laughing (or crying) at things only she can hear.
