For Emily Steele, the librarian at Beckfield College in Florence, Kentucky, teaching her students technology skills is one of the most important things she can do for them. Emily supports both young adults and the returning adult student, many of whom lack the technical skills they must have in the workplace today.
As a solo librarian, Emily handles Collection Development, teaches research skills, proctors exams, creates finding aids and other resources for students, all in addition to teaching technology skills every day to students who come in to the library. The library is well placed immediately behind the welcome desk when you first enter the school. With large panel glass windows and doors, you can't miss it.
Emily works hard on staying on top of trends in the library field which she feels keeps her fresh and open to new things. One of her favorite blogs is:http://21stcenturylibrary.com/
