Robert J. Vanderlaan

Robert Jay Vanderlaan is the Cataloger and one of the Reference Librarians for the Hendrik Meijer Library at Muskegon Community College. He also serves as the Collection Development Librarian.  He is a graduate of Muskegon High School, Muskegon Community College, and Western Michigan University.

As Cataloger, Bob classifies and catalogs books, video cassettes, compact discs and DVDs. He also does author and subject authority work. (There is more, but Bob was told to keep it simple.)

As Reference Librarian, Bob is willing and eager to assist individuals in using the library and, more specifically, in finding the information that the users need. Bob wants you to contact him or any of the other fine Reference Librarians at MCC if you need assistance. 

In addition to cataloging and reference work, Bob does book selection and collection development.
