About Me

candiseMy name is Candise Branum (she/her), and I am the Director of Library Services at the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine. I earned my BS in Sociology from Portland State University in 2005 and my MLS from Emporia State University in 2009. In addition to managing a small academic library, I am a member of the OCOM Faculty and teach information literacy to masters and doctoral students.

I am passionate about education and social justice, and am interested in radical pedagogy, information ethics, using technology to enhance UX, learning how to be a better leader. I believe wholeheartedly in both strategic planning and making things up as you go.
