“…Excited because they chose me, excited to mess with one-of-a-kind materials, excited to be in a beautiful place. Nervous because I don’t want to get there and after a week they realize they selected the wrong person.”
~ MLIS student, Tyler Gardner
“The first library I visited in Ireland actually surprised me a lot because it was in a mall. Not adjoining it, but in the mall. That was the Dublin Central Library.”
~ First-year student, Antonio Backman
“Getting this whole context that comes with a person rather than just the books they’re asking for can really help to provide a better service, a more professional and wholesome service, in the library.”
~ Sara Zetterval (MLIS ’12)
