Email alerts are disruptive, by design. Today, though, that disruption was exactly the encouragement I needed to reflect on library school, and life.
Allison is an MLIS student at the University of Maryland. She is specializing in Diversity and Inclusion and also pursuing a Graduate Certificate in Critical Theory. Allison is a staff member in the Reference and Instruction department of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) Library. She has a BA in English Literature and Political Science, and an MA in Legal and Ethical Studies; as well as previous work experience in higher ed and public libraries. Allison is passionate about interdisciplinarity, information literacy, equity, and critical pedagogy. When she’s not geeking out over all things library, Allison teaches yoga, enjoys rock climbing, tends a small flock of chickens in her urban backyard, and spends enormous amounts of time creating a life with her 4 children under the age of 7.
