6. In your own words: My early career as a music librarian helped instill my love of special collections and the wonders they have to offer. I am energized by the intellectual effort and variety of my work — no two days are ever the same. I also have a deep appreciation and respect for the work that librarians do to connect the library to users — faculty, students, visiting researchers, and others — and engage with them to envision new models and approaches for the future of research and scholarship.
