About Me

So… here is the place where I tell you a little bit about myself…. Here goes nothin’…

I am currently employed at the University of Central Florida at the Rosen Library. I work as the Circulation Sr. LTA where I maintain the front desk, handle holds and fines, as well as create the reserve records and really whatever needs to be done. We are a small little library.

Previously I worked at the UCF Hitt Library in the Special Collections and University Archives with Sandra Varry (Senior Archivist), Laila Miletic-Vejzovic (Department Head), and Whitney Broadaway (Book Conservator). It was here that I got my first Library experience. I was taught how to process collections (I reprocessed the Zines Collection, and re-sleeved and helped process part of the University Photograph Collection). I was also taught how to repair books using reversible methods and the importance of such methods. I thoroughly loved this job and will continue to seek a full time Archivist/Conservator position.

I was accepted into the Masters of Library and Information Sciences program at the University of South Florida for the 2011 school year and will complete my degree in December of 2012.

I am also married to the most amazing man I could have ever imagined. We were married in Adare, Ireland on June 21, 2010 and I hope to be going back there someday very very very soon! We have two adorable little Toy Fox Terriers named Doctor and Rose (which is definitely a Doctor Who reference for my fellow Whovians) and I am sure they will make an appearance on this blog before too long.

But for now, that is all I can think of to say about me and my little family so I will sign off and perhaps update this later!

Until next time,

Amanda Richards
