LSU Libraries Welcomes New Business Librarian

Posted in People

Rebecca Kelley, Business Librarian

The LSU Libraries warmly welcomes Rebecca Kelley, our new Business Reference Librarian.  Rebecca brings with her a strong business background, a Master’s of Library and Information Science (MLIS) degree from LSU, and a love of the Tigers.

During graduate school, Rebecca interned at the David R. Poynter Legislative Research Library at the Louisiana House of Representatives, and before starting her career as a librarian, she served as the Director of Administration for the City of Zachary (Louisiana) for four years, directing all financial functions of the city (accounting, AP, payroll, utility billing and procurement) and preparing the annual operating budget.  Additionally, she also worked as Project Manager during a major financial software conversion and implementation.  Prior to this role, Rebecca worked for ten years in the local banking industry, in a variety of departments, including accounting, training, account management, and internal auditing.

Rebecca was born and raised in East Feliciana Parish and currently resides in Zachary.  Her undergraduate degree, also from LSU, is Bachelor of General Studies (with minors in Business Administration, History, Sociology, and Political Science). As a lifelong LSU fan, she says she bleeds purple and gold, and she’s thrilled to work for this great university.

“I am excited to use my educational and business background to help provide students with specialized reference assistance,” says Rebecca, “I intend to offer research consultations during office hours at the Business Education Complex.  Additionally, I look forward to collaborating with Business faculty in developing library instructional materials and providing instructional sessions.”

Although she doesn’t claim to have a green thumb, she enjoys gardening and spending time in her yard.  She and her husband love to travel, and so she’s always planning for their next vacation.

Welcome, Rebecca!

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

  • #TBT As the Tigers roar into the opening game of the 2014 football season, let’s look back at the season opener from one hundred years ago. LSU faced Southwestern Louisiana Industrial Institute (now University of Louisiana at Lafayette) on September 26, a game Coach E.T. McDonald (standing at left in the photograph) called “merely a practice game” against a much smaller team with less ability. LSU cruised to an easy 54-0 victory.
