Liz’s Story:

As long as I can remember libraries have been my sanctuary,[showhide type=”post” more_text=”Show more…” less_text=”Show less…”] although it wasn’t until I was graduating with my first degree in English that I thought actually being a librarian would be a good career.  Since earning my MLS I’ve worked in many different libraries, including a year abroad at Nazarbaev University Library in Astana, Kazakhstan.  I like figuring out how to make services more usable for students and faculty, and enjoy creating new digital tools for learning.[/showhide]
