Lili currently serves as a Faculty Librarian at PVCC. She attended college at the age of 16, as a first-generation college student for her family, and earned her B.A. degree in English from Shanxi Normal University, China. Lili came to the U.S. and earned her Master’s in English in 1989 and then her Masters in Library & Information Science from the University of South Florida (Tampa, FL) in 1991.

She has worked as a professional librarian for about 27 years, 9 years in a public library in Orlando, FL, and 18 years in MCCCD libraries. She has also taught English and Chinese as an Adjunct Faculty at Phoenix College. Lili has a passion for being a teacher-librarian, interacting with faculty, students, and community, infusing information literacy and critical thinking, as well as igniting the learner’s passion for deeper learning and self-discovery in and outside the classroom. Meanwhile, Lili has devoted many efforts and time into cultural and intercultural exchanges and global awareness over the years. She has, with effective collaboration, initiated, organized and coordinated the PVCC annual Lunar New Year (LNY) Celebration (see the most recent celebration & link to the previous archives at bottom of the landing page) for 8 consecutive years, which has become a signature event for the college, and also won the Maricopa DAC Award of Excellence for the 2016 LNY celebration. She has also collaborated with David Bradley and contributed significantly to 2 large and high level ceramic art exhibits involving PVCC,, China Ceramics Industrial Association (CCIA), and ASU Ceramic Research Center.
