Hello, I'm Elizabeth, one of the new reference assistants here at the library. I started working here in September and I am excited to work at Roosevelt University where I get to be involved with a community full of individuals with such diverse backgrounds and interests. So far I have really enjoyed getting to know the students here and helping them learn to use all the resources the library offers and at the same time learning so much myself.
As for myself, I am currently working to get my Masters in Library and Information Science through the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. I received my BA in Classical Studies before going on to get my JD and practice law for a while before deciding I wanted to work in libraries. I have lived in and around Chicago my whole life with the exception of one year I spent in Washington, DC. I hope to continue to work in academic libraries throughout my career as I very much enjoy working with students in this setting.
