Fabbi went on to attend the University of Arizona for both her undergraduate and master���s degrees in information resources and library science, and has been a faculty member at UNLV for 14 years, serving in various capacities, including a stint in the Office of the Associate Vice Provost for Academic Affairs, concentrating on the Undergraduate Education reform proposal, which was approved by the Faculty Senate in 2011. A year and a half ago she assumed her current post as associate dean of UNLV Libraries, which comprises the Lied Library, the Architecture Studies Library, the Curriculum Materials Library and the Music Library. Fabbi, who was recently elected to the advisory board of Spread the Word Nevada, a nonprofit dedicated to advancing early childhood literacy, oversees a staff of 40, including 20 faculty librarians, and is responsible for all liaison outreach to academic departments, educational initiatives, campus partnerships, three branch libraries, service desks, public technology, campus communications, and the public face of the campus institutional repository. She has also authored numerous articles, papers and chapters. ���I basically care-take the research and education vision of the libraries, and a big piece of that is educational partnerships, and working with the faculty to ensure their students get the research and critical-thinking skills they need,��� Fabbi said. ���We want students to be able to communicate, to be civically engaged, to have a good grasp of the world and to be lifelong learners.��� ���D.B. 40 UNDER 40 2013 1A 20130304_VI01_I.indd 9 2/28/13 2:57:28 PM
