LSU Libraries welcomes Elisa Naquin as a Catalog Librarian. Although she is new to this position, Naquin knows about being a Tiger. She holds a BS in geography, an MA in linguistics, and an MLIS, all from LSU. Before earning her MLIS, she worked as an ESL instructor in the LSU English Department.
While earning her MLIS at LSU, Naquin worked as a graduate assistant in the LSU Libraries’ Cataloging Department (now the Resource Description & Metadata Services department). That position gave her hands-on cataloging experience, and it was during that time that she developed her strong interest in metadata creation. After completing her MLIS, Naquin worked as a cataloging and research librarian at the David R. Poynter Legislative Research Library at the Louisiana House of Representatives.
“I’m excited to return to the LSU Libraries as Catalog Librarian,” says Naquin, “I’m looking forward to working with my colleagues to create bibliographic descriptions which enable discovery by LSU students, faculty, and staff and growing in my cataloging expertise.”
Originally from Morse, Louisiana, Naquin has lived in Louisiana all her life. In her free time, she enjoys traveling and spending time with her husband, son, cat, and dog.
