Libraries are Life!
I currently work at the University of Illinois in preservation's digitization services. I have worked in a library for ~25 years of my life, starting in the media center in the library at the community college I was attending.
My teaching experience comes from assisting college students with their library research needs and teaching student workers how libraries actually work.
