Two University of Texas Grads in Reference

It is not often in a far northerly library to find two graduates of the University of Texas library school in one library. For the next month or so, Brent Lipinski is joining us in the public services department at Thomas Ford to answer questions at our reference desk, while we search for a new reference librarian.

Brent started at Thomas Ford in 1998 when he was still in high school. Most of his time with us has been spent at the circulation desk, checking thousands upon thousands of items for the our clients. He has also set up meeting rooms, shelved books, and kept us in good humor with his infectious personality.

Brent is the one on the left with hair. He graduated in 2007. My degree was issued in 1978. According to his degree he is really an information scientist with some library classes, but he seems to have a good grasp on everything reference. It is good to have him around again.

Hook 'em Horns!
