Please Welcome Ignacio Sánchez

Ignacio Sánchez, Assistant Professor of Library Science, joined Purdue University in September 2018, and he is a business information specialist in the Roland G. Parrish Library of Management and Economics. Previously, Ignacio served as the Business Research and Digital Services Librarian at Columbia University. While there, he developed specialized workshops in the areas of business research, the Bloomberg Terminal, marketing, consumer data, entrepreneurship, and economics research. His work to expand the library’s role in data research at that institution resulted in greater collaboration not only with the business school's faculty and students, but also with other areas of the university. His research interest includes the future of business librarianship, digital literacy, online learning, and the cross section of data and the libraries.
