Hello! My name is Elizabeth Fox and I am the Digital Information Services Librarian and Copyright Compliance Officer for Briggs Library at South Dakota State University. I have been a librarian for 22 years with an MLIS from the University of Texas, Austin, a M.Ed. in Adult and Higher Education, Curriculum and Instruction from South Dakota State University, and am working on a Ph.D. in Sociology from SDSU.

I love being a librarian – I love working with our patrons and helping them find information; I love working in the midst of mountains of books; I love working with smart, interesting people; I love working with computers. My current position entails a basic information services (reference and instruction) with the added responsibilities of maintaining our websites and communicating with database providers (for issues other than purchasing).

Outside the library, I like reading (did I even need to mention that?), knitting, crocheting, tatting, spinning yarn, growing things, my pets, and Pinterest.

I am very excited to be included in the IAmRUSA group and look forward to chatting with all of you.

David Tyckoson's picture

Hello, everyone.  I am RUSA -- and decided to demonstrate that fact by creating a video that talks about me and the benefits of RUSA.  You can watch it at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4kZwmdMkxrA It's a little long, but well worth the time it takes to watch.  My wife calls it a RUSA Infommercial  -- see what you think.

Please send me questions -- about me, about reference, about the video, about RUSA, about life, about anything (Remember, I am a reference librarian so I should be able to look something up when I do not know the answer!).  I'll give you an answer -- and it should be right 55% of the time.

Now two questions for you:

1.  The opening shot of the video was inspired by what major motion picture (and I know that you all have seen it, since it is always on some cable channel)?

2.  What is the inspiration for the 55% quip that I mentioned above?

Five imaginary points to the first person who answers each of those questions (and you never know when you might need five additional imaginary points!).
