About the Reviewers:
Michelle and Sarah are both Information Resources & Library
Science students at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona.
We both work at the Arizona Health Sciences Library, where
we help people find information related to health and medicine.
Sarah was born in Minnesota, grew up in New Jersey, and has
lived in Washington, Oregon, California, and Illinois before
moving to Arizona with her husband over two years ago. She
loves living in the Southwest and has no plans to leave Tucson
in the near future. Sarah has many areas of interest, which
have influenced her life in various ways. She has a Master's
degree in folklore, has worked for years in the natural food
industry, and has always loved reading and sharing stories.
In addition to working at the Arizona Health Sciences Library,
Sarah also works for Pima County Public Library. When she's
not working or studying, she loves to hike in the Rincon Mountains.
In the past, Sarah enjoyed working with teens at an outdoor
educational center in NJ and often shared fantastic tales
around the campfire with them. While she loves the outdoors,
Sarah looks forward to sharing stories with teens in public
libraries more regularly in the future.
Michelle is a native to Arizona and has lived in Tucson for
two years. She loves Tucson but is open to moving if offered
the right librarian job. She is particularly interested in
becoming an academic librarian specializing in the subjects
of psychology and sociology, but is considering public libraries
or medical libraries as well. She has two bachelor degrees,
one in psychology and one in integrative studies. When she
is not studying or working in "library land," she
enjoys dancing, reading, watching movies (especially foreign
films) and hanging out with her friends. She is interested
in learning more about sustainable living, world geography
and diverse cultures by traveling, and studying yoga/meditation.
She finds working in a library challenging, diverse, and enjoyable
and it's a conducive environment for learning new information
while helping others.
