This week’s 7Questions? comes from Heather Lausten, Curriculum Librarian at Grand Canyon University. Heather is currently Co-Chair of the AzLA CULD:
1.What three words would you use to describe yourself?
Always Seeking Answers
2. What is your favorite place in AZ?
The Mogollon Rim
3. What do you value about working in a college or university library?
I love the constant focus on learning. We are all learning and discovering new things. It keeps me on my toes and gives me something new to see every day.
4. What is the best thing about AzLA?
It provides a community outside my own workplace. It helps to see that there are others experiencing the same thing and coming up with solutions that may also apply to my situation.
5. What was your first library job?
My current one. I got lucky and went from a life outside of libraries into a job as a librarian relatively seamlessly.
6. What are you currently reading?
Boneshaker by Cherie Priest
7. Any parting words of wisdom for your AZ CULD colleagues?
Go out and talk to people. The dialog is what matters and the answers will follow. There is a place for everyone, from someone that wants to be a huge part to someone that can only contribute a little.
