On August 28, Janell Huyck began work at the University of Cincinnati Libraries as a software applications developer in the Application Development Unit.
Janell will work with the rest of the Application Development Unit to develop and enhance custom applications and to support other library hosted applications and sites. This additional developer position provides more resources to keep up with increased cybersecurity requirements and to explore more innovative solutions.
Bringing over two-and-a-half years of software development experience to the role, Janell is eager to contribute to the team’s initiatives. A Cincinnati native, Janell attended Sycamore High School before heading to the University of Wyoming for her college education. She returned to Cincinnati in 2018 to be closer to her family. Outside of work, Janell enjoys the company of her two cats and immerses herself in the worlds of sci-fi and fantasy literature. Excited about her new role, she is looking forward to meeting new people and making meaningful contributions to the UC community.
