The practicum is about experience with new people in a new environment. For me, that would be a public library. I actually experience a library five days a week. I currently work at an academic library, the Elmhurst College A.C. Buehler Library. I am a Catalog Assistant. This means I enter the incoming books, videos, and all sorts of electronic materials into the catalog. I also update periodical and serial records. Since starting graduate school, I have also enjoyed more hours at the reference desk. Last year the college started gaming nights, and since I am a gamer, I became a consultant/coordinator for our gaming extravaganza. It is once again the start of a new year here. There are students moving in and exploring the campus. This means new patrons for the library.
