Newly Appointed Communication Managers & Book Club Reminder =^.^=

Since there were only two responses to the call for a Communication Manager, two people have been appointed. Here is some information about the lovely gals behind the LISSO pages!

Lauren Farmer attended UK as an undergraduate where she majored in History and Secondary Social Studies Education. She became interested in pursuing a career in librarianship during her internship with the Learning Lab at the Special Collections Research Center and has gone on to work as a Research Room assistant and accept a GA position in Reference at Young Library. She also enjoys teaching classes at Diana Evans School of Dance, bird-watching, and reading historical fiction. When asked to choose one word to define herself, she picked kind! She strives to be kind to everyone.

In honor of Lauren's bird-watching hobby, here is a link to the Cornell Lab Bird Cams! It's addicting...so watch out.

Natalie Bishop is a Lexington native and returned to Kentucky shortly after completing her business degree at Miami University in Oxford, OH. Her interest in libraries was first piqued by her job as a writing consultant at the Howe Writing Center at Miami, which was located in the main campus library. Currently, she works as a library intern at the Shaver Engineering Library here at UK and is enrolled in her first semester of the MLIS program. One word that she would use to describe herself is curious. She is constantly doing research on her various interests, which includes but is not limited to the most current presidential race, interior design, social justice issues, and psychology topics.

Natalie likes interior design..what do you think of the Babeliothèque East Side Gallery in Berlin? Are you "architained"?


Check out the UK LISSO Facebook page here and give our friends UK ALA Student Chapter a look too.

Don't forget the book club meeting is at 7:00 at Crank & Boom on Thursday. Check out our book club blog and/or attend if you can! We'd love it if you could join!

cats & happiness always,
