New Faces at the Libraries: Angel Tang

March 24, 2021

Angel Tang recently joined the UW-Madison Libraries as the Data, Science, and Engineering Diversity Resident Librarian!

Before taking this position in December 2020, Angel was the Archives Assistant at the Center for Railroad Photography and Art, where she digitized train photograph negatives and selected images to share through social media. As a recent graduate of UW-Madison’s iSchool, she is very familiar with campus and the Libraries. Angel says she has a life-long connection to libraries, so she was thrilled when the Diversity Resident Librarian position became available. 

So far Angel has really enjoyed the opportunity to work with so many talented, dedicated librarians! She’s especially looking forward to the day we all return to onsite work so she can meet her colleagues in person. 

On sunny spring days, you’ll find Angel wandering through one of Madison’s lakeside parks with a Gotham Bagel in hand! She’s looking forward to exploring more of Madison’s green spaces and bike paths in the warmer months. 

Angel is involved with the Junior League of Madison and has participated in efforts supporting the Ronald McDonald house. In addition, she volunteers as an alumna advisor to the local chapter of her sorority, Pi Beta Phi.

Four Fun Facts about Angel:

  1. Favorite book: I love the book Coraline by Neil Gaiman, as well as its movie adaptation
  2. Standout UW-Madison fact she’s learned: Memorial Library is Wisconsin’s biggest library!
  3. Favorite color: Red
  4. Something surprising: I played the harp in middle school and high school. I was never any good, but it was fun!
