Alexandra is a dedicated young professional destined to contribute significantly to the ever-evolving field of librarianship. Above all, she is an intelligent, kindhearted individual who is a pleasure to have on staff. For all of these reasons, I am pleased to recommend Alexandra Freddi Janvey. With her positive attitude and dedication, I am confident she will be an asset.

Allie is a pleasure to work with. We met and worked together on the program committee for the 2015 Long Island Library Conference. Allie’s organizational skills and attention to detail ensured everything went smoothly on Conference Day. I hope to have the opportunity to work with Allie again in the future.

I’ve known Alexandra for several years as a co-worker on several projects, on committees, and at conferences, we both participated in. I was a Graduate Assistant at LIU Post in the same department she worked in, then as a collaborator for a joint digitization project between The Frick Collection, where I worked, and LIU Post, where she worked. Lastly, I was hired as a contractor to assist her department at LIU Post with their newest digital project.

Alexandra is a great worker and assigned tasks with ease and clear instruction. She is always willing to help her colleagues and any student that comes into her department. She serves on many committees and offers useful advice on different topics, such as career hunting, volunteer work, and the like. She is excellent and impressive in the many roles she has as a librarian and a good and trustworthy individual in every way possible.

Allie has been my supervisor for almost two years as a Graduate Assistant at LIU Post, which has been an invaluable experience. She’s smart, professional, funny and always prepared. I am impressed by Allie’s kind, approachable manner and the thorough way that she attends to her duties.

Allie always made her expectations clear, but didn’t micromanage, trusting us to get the job done. She always had an efficient strategy lined up to make our work go smoothly. All workers were frequently apprised of a project’s progress, which helped to keep us on track. She prides herself on setting goals, meeting deadlines, and delivering quality content produced by our department.

She often goes above and beyond to help both colleagues and students. I entered this position not knowing much about archives or collection care but came out confident in my abilities thanks to her patient guidance. I also appreciate the time she took out of her busy schedule to help me better prepare for the job market. She is a fantastic supervisor and I highly recommend her to any future employers.

I worked with Alexandra processing the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge construction photograph collection at the MTA Bridges and Tunnel Archive. I found her to be very detail-oriented and extremely well organized. She approaches any task with initiative and a very positive attitude. Alexandra was always ready to contribute great ideas to the project and her work was of the highest quality. She took great care and skill in crafting the scope and content of the finding aid. She was very informative, helpful, and approachable in showing me how to use Excel. She is open, friendly, and it was an extreme pleasure to work with her. It is clear Alexandra is passionate about archives and would be an asset to any endeavor.

Allie was an excellent student who contributed heavily to the class. In this class, she learned how to interact with library users and how to overcome some of the psychological barriers that users have in asking for help. Allie did such a good job that I asked her to work with students in later sessions when I did not have enough participants in those classes. As such, she helped them learn how to work with their library patrons.

Allie interned with the NYC DEP Archive for seven months and undertook several processing projects during that time period. She was committed to her projects, but also flexible and pitched in wherever she was needed. Allie is very thorough and meticulous and I could always count on her work to be free of errors. Given the large amount of material she was processing, this speaks highly of both her ability to focus on the task at hand and the pride she took in the final product. Allie didn’t hesitate to ask questions or contribute ideas for the benefit of the project. She is certainly missed here at the DEP Archive.

It is a pleasure to write a recommendation for Alexandra. Alexandra became involved with our Second Life Library, the Sustainable Living Library, by first attending sustainable events held at the library; through conversations with her, she discovered that we needed an exhibit about Water Resources.

When Alexandra was asked to create the exhibit, she went all out! She created multiple displays containing numerous web resources and even created a children’s section that linked to educational online games related to water. The exhibit was visually pleasing, as well as highly informative.

Alexandra’s organizational and reference skills are highly valued by the members of the Sustainable Living Library, and all its’ visitors. She is a great member of our team!

Alexandra Janvey has been an intern for 2 years at the Northport Historical Society. In the time that she has been at the Society, I have found Alexandra to be reliable, cooperative, eager to learn and a willing worker. As a small organization with limited staff, these attributes are vital to the operation of the Society. She relates well to visitors and staff alike. Allie is a willing worker with a bright future and will be an asset to her profession.
