Sarah

Sarah’s hometown is Marion, Iowa, although she graduated from Washington High School in Washington, Iowa.  Sarah began her career at UNI with some credits, so although she is technically a senior, she is in her third year at UNI pursuing a double major in Anthropology and Biology with a minor in Chemistry.  She is pursuing a double major as she plans to work as a forensic anthropologist (real CSI stuff!!), a field that will fully utilize her educational experience.  After completing her degree, Sarah will attend graduate school; she has elected to attend a University out of state and would like to go to Boston University or perhaps the University of Tennessee at Knoxville.  Still, Iowa may be back in her future if the right position opens as a forensic anthropologist!

Sarah began working at the Library as a freshman.  With a Work Study award, she carefully perused the job board and a job ad for working at the Information Desk caught her attention and interest.  She applied and was hired.  Sarah has a good friend who has Library experience and totally loved her job, so with that endorsement, Sarah was happy with her choice.  And she has not been disappointed as she is very happy with her job!  She works part time at the Information Desk, answering questions and directing students as needed; she answers the phone and also takes chat questions.  She also works on the floor shelving Reference books and Documents and monitors the Documents shelves looking for any miss-shelved materials and correcting the error.  She files maps and Documents microfiche.  Sarah finds the library environment appealing and being able to schedule regular hours is also a benefit.

Sarah’s favorite tasks in the Library are the tasks working on the floor in Documents, shelving the documents and maps and filing the microfiche, although she also enjoys the time she interacts with students at the Information Desk, helping or directing them to the area they need.  Her least favorite part is filling the printers with paper!

During her free time, Sarah enjoys reading on her Nook or watching something on Netflix.  She also has fun hanging out with her roommates. 

Rod Library appreciates you Sarah and thanks you for all you do!!  Congratulations for being chosen February 2017 Rod Library Student of the Month
