About Gillian

About Gillian
I graduated this May with my Master's in Library and Information Sciences from Simmons University. I have taken classes in reference services, services to diverse users, collection management, instruction, and more. I work at a public library and an academic library, and I love to assist patrons with all sorts of questions! In my free time, I love to read, hang with my cats, rollerblade, and cook yummy gluten free vegan food.

Teaching Experience
I have taken a course in user instruction, which had me design and lead a class. I also spent nearly a year tutoring college aged students with developmental disabilities in various life skills, such as budgeting and healthy eating. I have also worked on one on with patrons in a public library setting, assisting with all sorts of questions, from how to set up an email account to how to find proper sources for a class assignment.
