    Hey, fellow Swem-goers! My name is Alexis and I have been working at Swem Circulation for over a year now. I started out as an assistant, shelving and sorting from the books needed for final papers. Last year, I was able to help deliver books to professors all over campus. And as it turns out, books can bring more excitement when you get to drive them in a golf-cart, trying not to get stuck behind tour groups (otherwise known as flamingos).

    I started working at Swem in my very first week of freshman year and fell in love with the place immediately. On my first day, I wandered the library to fill out a scavenger-hunt-esque training exercise that introduced me to the labyrinth of books that serves as the cultural capital of our campus. The building really does it all.

    My name is Elisabeth Merrifield. Yes, it is spelled with an ‘s’ and not a ‘z’ mainly because my parents did not want me to be called ‘Liz’ (it did not work). I am a senior at the College. I am double majoring in government and history. I transferred in the Fall of 2015 and have loved it here. I play for the Gold Women’s Club Volleyball team and love my team. They are outstanding and ridiculously smart people.

    Hi everyone! My name is Zihan Yang, most people know me as Carrie. I’m an international student from China and this is my third year at William & Mary (how time flies). Back home, I love to spend my free time at my high school’s library and the public library, so when I came to college, the first place I went to check out was the library. I immediately fell in love with our Swem library because it’s so beautiful and resourceful.

    I became William & Mary Libraries’ Science Librarian on December 25th, 2017. In my first four months of employment I’ve had several people (including my family members) ask me: “So what exactly does a science librarian do?” It’s a great question! As libraries are changing, librarians are changing with them. Even as I sit down today to write about my daily work life, I know that it might be a different story in a year.

    As an Exhibit Apprentice in Swem’s Special Collections, I had the opportunity to curate a World War I centennial exhibit.

    In my first two years at W&M, I rarely went to Swem. It was crowded and busy and stressful, and I preferred the coziness of my own room. But for the past year and a half, I have stepped into Swem hundreds of times, more than my freshman self could have possibly imagined.
