Nathan Farley

Systems Librarian



I have been at the Berntsen Library at Northwestern for over 30 years in a variety of roles. For me, the true joys of librarianship are helping others finding the information they need, exploring new ideas, and the hunt for the illusive. My other hobbies are in theater arts. I'm an actor and a costume, prop, and set designer. I work with the UNW Theater department as well as a number of small regional film and theatre companies.
