    It s so important to me that students leave college understanding how information is created and how to evaluate it so they begin their career as a critical consumer of information The students here catch on so quickly which is amazing considering what a complicated concept it is What s your favorite book or your top 5 In no particular order Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris Beloved by Toni Morrison The Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood What songs would you include on the soundtrack of your life Icona Pop s I Don t Care is my theme song Why did you become a librarian Basically I just really like helping people I worked at one of the libraries at the University of Washington while I was a student and enjoyed helping people navigate the library system because I knew all the great things that were there After college I volunteered for a literacy organization tutoring an adult student preparing for the US Citizenship exam I noticed the similarities in my volunteer work and what I imagined working as a librarian would be like helping people navigate seemingly endless information in order to achieve their goals and realized how much I loved that work I still do What do you wish every student knew about the library or librarians That my colleagues and I work really hard to keep the library running useful A lot of people have the misconception that we read books I wish or put books away all day In reality we teach purchase materials negotiate with vendors write budgets advise faculty on research assignments publish research organize outreach events put together exhibits create webpages online tutorials volunteer on campus professional committees answer questions from e mail text the desk and chat and all kinds of other things I m not pointing this out in order to get sympathy but I think that people would be more likely to look to librarians for any kind of research help if they better understand what our expertise is Is there a specific class that you really enjoy doing library instruction for Any class that laughs at my dumb jokes If you could learn any skill what would it be Woodworking It s difficult to learn when you live in an apartment though If you could witness any event in history what would it be Any event involving early humans as long as time travel comes with an invisibility cloak What are some of your current projects tutorials that you are working on I m working on a research project where I m having CSUN students make avatars shameless plug if you re a CSUN student please participate by e mailing me I also share responsibility for the Research Therapy series and am a juror for the American Library Association s Over the Rainbow Book List Laurie Borchard Comments Off on Meet the Librarians of the Oviatt Posted
