David Floyd (he / him)

Cataloging Librarian and Subject Librarian for Music

David is both the Cataloging Librarian and the Subject Librarian for Music. He has loved working in academic libraries since he first started as a student assistant at UT Knoxville’s Music Library. At Binghamton, he catalogs all different kinds of material for the Libraries, but specializes in cataloging music scores, sound recordings and Special Collections items. David is not just a cataloger though and loves the Music Librarian side of his position. He finds it an incredible opportunity to continue developing the Libraries’ substantial collections of scores, sound recordings and music literature and loves working with the students and faculty of the music department. Overall, David is really enjoying getting to know this library, the campus and the community. When he’s not at work, he likes to relax by playing an instrument, cooking or baking and losing to his husband at Super Smash Bros.
