Assistant Librarian Rebecca Miller

A December 2007 graduate of the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill’s School of Information and Library Science, Assistant Librarian Rebecca Miller recently joined LSU Libraries in the newly created position of Digital Technologies/ Information Literacy Librarian. As part of the Middleton Library Reference Department, Rebecca helps staff the reference desk, teaches LIS 1001, and explores and implements digital technology into library services. Miller is also interested in researching the potential relationships among gaming, virtual worlds, and information literacy.

Since her first day at LSU in July 2008, she has participated on a statewide panel at a conference discussing the possible roles of Web 2.0 technology in library services, met with librarians throughout the state to talk about collaborative ventures, and partnered with Business Librarian Jo Ann Henson to create informative podcasts for library instruction.

“Although I always knew that I wanted to be a librarian when I ‘grew up,’” relates Miller, “my experiences as a brand-new information literacy instructor have really changed my ideas about the role of the library within the community. Reaching out to students and helping them understand information in today’s world has become my foremost consideration, and I look forward to finding new ways for Middleton to connect with students and help them build the skills they need by the time they leave LSU.”

Sigrid Kelsey is the Director of Library Communications and Publications at the LSU Libraries.
