I’m a sophomore English w/ Writing Concentration and Women and Gender Studies Major, as well as a Japanese minor. When I was growing up, my public library was a place of refuge and exploration, but it I didn’t exactly consider a profession in the library sciences until recently. As I grew from a book-devouring child to a book-devouring teenager, I realized I was beginning to fall out of love with libraries, and I couldn’t exactly pen why. When I examined the root of my sudden falling out, I found a strange answer; my public and high school libraries didn’t have a very diverse catalog that represented my interest, and the protagonists and authors inside their books weren’t exactly reflective of who I was. But thankfully, that all changed when I came to college, and my love for the architecture and catalogue of Musselman Library was actually one of the reasons I chose to come here! [excerpt]
