Who needed help: W&M faculty and staff with children or child care responsibilities

    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.

    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.

    Hi, I’m Azana Carr, and I work as a student assistant for the W&M Libraries External Relations office.  The best way to describe my job is: “You know all the events, workshops, and therapy dogs that happen in Swem? We do that!”

    Our collection of artists’ books is ever-growing and teeming with innovative ways to redefine the traditional codex; the Old Stile Press is only a small introduction to the craftsmanship found hidden among our Special Collections.

    Hi! My name is Grace and I’ve been working at the Swem Circulation desk for a little over a year now. If you come to Swem often enough you might know me as ‘the girl with the bangs.’ Even though it’s only been a year, I am here so often now some of the full-time Swem staff are convinced that I’ve been here forever!
