Name: Aaron
Year: Senior
Major: English

Favorite Library Resource: Special Collections! Especially the old maps and the artists’ books.

Favorite Place to Work in the Library: When the library is crowded, the purple chairs in the New Pit. When the library is emptier, the tables in Southeast Stacks LL1.

Reason you wanted to be a reference assistant: I was curious about the work librarians do and also wanted to help Reedies!

Hardest thing about research: Being willing to exclude unnecessary information, even when it’s cool and interesting.

Favorite thing about Reed: All the dogs probably.

Cool thing you did this summer: A bunch of my friends and I put on a 1 and a half day music festival in Washington D.C. made up almost entirely of local bands.
