SLIS Alum Amber Hunt is Fearless

SLIS Alum Amber Hunt is Fearless

Library Journal featured Amber Hunt (MLIS, University of Iowa, 2003) as a “fearless” agent of change and one of their Movers & Shakers of 2013. She is currently the Reference and Technology Librarian at Rice-Aron Library, Marlboro College in Vermont.

Read the LJ webpost about Amber’s innovation in moving her library to not one, but THREE open source programs at one time! With cost savings from moving to the new system, the library was enabled to purchase journal content resources and use of the new software resulted in significant increases in patron’s access and retrieval of texts.

Thanks to Amber for showing the real value and innovation a good academic librarian can bring to a college library!
