Hi there! Thanks for stopping by!
My name is Georgia Westbrook and I am in the Master of Library and Information Science program at Syracuse University (graduating in December 2019). With a background in art history and student journalism, I’m passionate about information literacy, particularly visual literacy and news literacy, and I am honing my skills in information organization and metadata, copyright, reference, and research.
Currently, I am an Atkins Fellow at the J. Murrey Atkins Library at UNC Charlotte, supporting scholarly communications and digital publishing work. I recently wrapped up a year working in the Learning Commons at SU. I’m also part of the iSchool Public Libraries Initiative — check it out here. I’ve previously worked and/or interned at the Binghamton University Libraries, Corning Museum of Glass Rakow Research Library, and the Jewish Women’s Archive.
I have experience with digital library projects, special collections, reference, publication database management, and oral histories, and I’m always eager to learn more.
