Download Libraries Are Their People - Accessible Version (194 KB)


I came to USM having no idea what career I wanted to pursue, what my passion or focus was. Then I joined the Student Library Advisory Board.

Through SLAB I had exposure to work which I had no Idea would be so vital or personally fulfilling. Every opportunity I have had with the libraries has enriched my life beyond words.

During my work on this project, I realized that the greatest value offered is the passion, graciousness, and willingness to give time that these incredible staff and involved students have. Depicted above is me meeting with librarian and my project supervisor, Carrie. A person who was not just a supervisor, but a true mentor.
