Cindy Belden began as a volunteer for the Library in 2009 after earning her Master’s Degree in Library Science from the University of North Texas in 2008. Having worked in a public library setting, Cindy came to ASU with the intent to expand her Library experience by working at the academic level. In June of 2010, Cindy became a Library Assistant for Government Documents. The demand for an experienced cataloger continued to present itself with increased workloads, so in January Cindy was promoted to the position of Senior Cataloger. Cindy’s years of experience and academic qualifications, made her an obvious choice for the position. Her devotion and ambition will continue to serve the Library well as she assumes this new role.
