New librarian hopes to make library user-friendly

This archived article was written by: Carli Jensen

Students working in the library have been seeing a new face. Lori Brassaw is the new reference librarian at CEU.
Brassaw teaches students how to use the references available. She teaches students how to make searches and effectively use the library.
She is also here to support the faculty and staff. She teaches courses for some of the professors on how to use the library.
“A kid in a candy store,” is how she describes herself when it comes to working for the CEU library. Brassaw came to Price in December after accepting the new librarian offer.
She likes the CEU Library because it has the resources of a large library without the hassle. She also likes the atmosphere of campus.
Although it has been hard to learn all the details of how CEU’s Library works, she looks forward to learning all of the nuts and bolts of the job.
With a master’s degree in library science from Emporia State University and a bachelor’s degree in art from BYU, she is qualified for the job. A love for libraries is also something that qualifies her.
To help improve the CEU Library, Brassaw plans to work with the staff members and make everything in the library user friendly.
She wants everyone to be comfortable approaching her and other staff members. She hopes students, faculty and the community will use the resources that are available to them.
The challenge of working and living in Price is something new that she enjoys and plans to do for a while.
Brassaw said that she was surprised by all of the things that CEU’s library has to offer. The resources that we have access to are as good as those libraries at large universities.
