Showcase Week 3: Lindsay Roberts


Areas of interest–library instruction, reference, adult learners, academic libraries, user-centered design, online learning, educational technologies, usability, web content management, information architecture
Experience– In my first year of the MLIS program, I did a 2-credit service learning project at Denver Public Library’s Community Technology Center. I trained to give basic computer classes and one-on-one computer help. This helped me get a graduate teaching assistantship at Auraria Library, where I worked the Research Help desk and taught library instruction classes. As a result of working in an academic library, I got a job at Arapahoe Community College as a Reference Librarian. Even the smallest volunteer position can help build your skills and lead to other interesting work or contacts in the field.
