Michigan State University Libraries
Student Supervisor, August 2010-December 2013
I held the position of Student Worker (and as of August 2011, Student Supervisor) at the MSU Main Library Copy Center and Course Reserves. I was responsible for the maintenance of copiers, printers, and other hardware. I was expected to assist patrons with issues that arose while using our equipment. I also got to set up and run a book printing machine, and was able to help make suggestions for 3D printer purchases. The biggest lesson I learned from my time at the library is that problem solving requires creativity; if I want to help others with their problems, sometimes I have to think outside of the "normal".
