About Laura

About Laura
As a librarian, my greatest satisfaction comes from connecting students to the library resources they need. I enjoy the range of questions that arise in an academic community and love learning about what students and faculty are studying. I previously worked for the libraries at NYU Abu Dhabi and MIT. Playing the violin with a local orchestra and chasing my two young sons around the playground fill out my days!
