Ajax Delvecki has joined the library staff as an Instruction Librarian at the Charleston campus. He will be working closely with our CSN instructors and other librarians to create customized content and library instruction sessions teaching important research skills. Ajax has kindly answered a few questions to help us get to know him:

Where are you originally from and where have you worked along the way?

I am originally from Oklahoma City. I have also lived in in the UK and (very briefly) in South Africa.

What have you learned in other jobs that you think would be beneficial to the students at CSN? 

I started working in public libraries in 2004 and just stayed in the profession. There's so much you can do in this field! I come from a customer service/retail background, and I feel that those skills translate well to the reference desk in terms of listening, understanding, and courtesy.

What do you do for fun?

I know that everyone else says this, but I love to travel. I started driving at 15 and never stopped. I love setting out on country roads and looking around for unexpected gems. Unfortunately, I am also prone to trespass and explore abandoned buildings. I also like to read online magazines written in other languages and pretend I know what's being said. 😄

What are you most looking forward to experiencing at CSN?

I am looking forward to working with the CSN community. So far, this is one of the more positive/optimist workplaces I have experienced. I am very fortunate to be in a position where I get to learn new skills with such helpful colleagues.

What do you feel is your biggest personal or professional accomplishment?

I am most proud of a book I researched and published on defunct OKC department stores. I started researching those stores when I was a small child, so the project was like my life's work.
