Doing research or helping others do research is part of daily life for many people in the university, a known and familiar activity. For a few people, though, the prospect of doing research or helping others to do so is part of the new life they are imagining for themselves after they earn their master’s degree in library and information science (MLIS). The author corresponded with three MLIS students currently working at the John C. Hitt Library in staff positions to learn about the future of library research through their eyes.
Our interviewees are Lily Flick, Adjunct in Acquisitions & Collections and in Scholarly Communication; Mary Rubin, Senior Archivist in Special Collections & University Archives; and Angie Villafañe, Senior Library Technical Assistant in Cataloging Services.
