Chief Information Officer & Constance A. Jones Director of Libraries
Bryn Mawr College
Gina Siesing is CIO and Constance A. Jones Director of Libraries at Bryn Mawr College. At Bryn Mawr, Gina leads a multi-disciplinary Library & Information Technology Services organization that supports faculty and students in maximizing the benefits of technology for learning and scholarship, that enables discovery and analysis of research materials and rich special collections, and that facilitates administrative functions College-wide. Gina’s work focuses significantly on strengthening our consortial relationships within the Tri-College Consortium with Haverford and Swarthmore Colleges and across the higher education community. Gina is a strong advocate for the critical benefit of liberal arts education in the 21st century, both in terms of graduates’ preparedness to contribute and lead in diverse professional fields and in terms of the values of mindful and engaged citizenship that are core to liberal arts learning and practice. Gina teaches in Bryn Mawr’s first-year experience program, called THRIVE, and offers first-year writing seminars on a variety of topics, including “Monsters & Mysteries” and “Complex Thinking, Simple Wisdom.” Prior to joining the Bryn Mawr community, Gina directed the Educational & Scholarly Technology Services group at Tufts University, where she also served on the University Library Council and co-stewarded the Tufts Digital Library program. Gina has been involved with consortial organizations such as NERCOMP, where she served on the Board of Trustees and as Co-Dean with David Wedaman and Colleen Wheeler of the Learning Organization Academy.
