Ilda Cardenas

Electronic Resources Librarian


I am the Electronic Resources Librarian at Pollak Library. I maintain the library’s electronic resources like databases, electronic journals and books. I troubleshoot access problems to these resources and make sure they get fixed. I started my career as a cataloging librarian and have since made the change over to electronic resources. I love working in libraries and am very excited to be working at Cal State Fullerton!
