Laura works on the development & research team and is the Head of Library Materials and Acquisitions. She received her MLIS from the University of Wisconsin and B.A. in English literature from the University of Minnesota. As a blogger for the New Learning Times
and Archival Revival
she focuses on issues in libraries and publishing as they relate to the future of education. Her interest in the future of libraries has led to work on Roomer
, a mobile room reservation system for the library and Pocket Knowledge
, the library’s social and digital archive.
Laura’s professional goals include changing everything, not destroying the library, and maintaining the delicate balance between old skool librarianship and newfangled technology.
