Give a big welcome to our new librarian intern, David Thomas!
A little about Dave...
Education: As an undergraduate student I attended Moraine Valley Community College and then transferred to UIUC where I graduated with a degree in journalism. I went on to the University of Illinois at Springfield and received a master's degree in public affairs reporting. I just graduated in May from the University of Illinois with a master's degree in library and information science.
Library/Work Experience: Most recently I've been in the classroom as a community college instructor and grade school teacher. Naturally, information literacy is a top professional passion.
Personal: I am an avid fan of Big Ten Sports and am looking forward to December football this season at Memorial Stadium.
Interesting fact: I have one earlobe that is attached and one earlobe that is unattached. -----
Dave will work as a librarian intern at Parkland Library until December 2009.He comes to us through theIMLS/GSLIS/NILRC community college librarianship grant intern program. For information about this program, click here.
As you may remember, our library catalog was updated earlier this summer. Due to technical difficulties, this morning the catalog was reverted back to the previous version. The link above will take you right to the Parkland Library Catalog. If you need assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us at 217/373-3839 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
