Who are we?

Cas

I’m a Law Library Fellow at the Daniel F. Cracchiolo Law Library and MLIS student at the University of Arizona. I like to tinker. I built my own gaming computer, taught myself visualization and audio software for a conference scholarship application, and am often elbow deep in ten different, half-started, self-assigned projects. This blog will be in part about my journey to figure out what I really need to focus on learning and what will be obsolete before I send out my first job application.

I’m the Systems Librarian at a small, private university in Mississippi.  I received my MLIS in 2012.  In the past I have been a special collections cataloger (ask me about railroad pamphlets or 19th century travel books sometime) and an interlibrary loan specialist.  Currently, I wear many hats; therefore, I tinker out of necessity.  I serve as our integrated library system administrator, website administrator, I do a LOT of cataloging, and I man the reference desk one night a week.  Currently, I am very interested in user studies and usability in general, but more specifically for library websites.  I took on my position knowing it would be challenging at times, but I love every second of it.  I hope to share some of the tools I’ve found along the way that make my job easier and to serve as a reminder that we all have to start somewhere.

We are librarians!
