Biography:
Ancil is responsible for building upon an already well-established program of local engagement by seeking out new partnership opportunities and nurturing existing relationships. This includes analyzing existing outreach programs and services that meet the needs of specific communities, designing projects to improve their accessibility and impact, developing instructional and promotional materials and training librarians who interact with external groups and work directly with target communities. He also coordinates the Libraries' services to patrons with disabilities, and maintains the Assistive Technologies room in Van Pelt's Goldstein Undergraduate Study Center. Extending his reach beyond the Libraries, Ancil serves on the advisory boards of Penn's African American Resource Center, and the Greenfield Intercultural Center. Ancil holds a BA in Sociology from Penn, and an MS in Library and Information Science from Drexel University.
