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.
