I am Ashley. I am from Wisconsin. I currently am working as a Library Assistant at my local library. I was originally hired as a page for youth services and have worked my way up to being a library assistant. I have been there for over 4 years now. I currently work on all three of our floors. First floor is circulation, second floor is reference and third floor this children's/youth services. I am taking this course because I plan to get my degree for a library assistant. I have taken 4 on line library courses prior to this. What I hope to get out of this course is a deeper understanding of library technology so I can use it to better service our patrons. Some things I like to do are be outside, go camping, hang out with family and friends and I love to take my puppy for walks. I have an 11th month old puppy named Benelli, I got him from a rescue. His mom was tied to a tree and left there. Last semester I found that the course work came easily to me since I have been working in the library for so long. It was easy for me to apply my previous knowledge to what I was currently learning. I am hoping this will be the same. I don't think I have had to much expirence with library technology just computers, self check machines, faxing, copy machines and our 3D printer. My favorite tech toy would be my Mac Book Pro because it allows me to better my photography skills with photoshop and lightroom plus it is fast, light and has a ton of storage.
