Hi! I’m Elizabeth Lieutenant (Liz to those who know me well), and I thank you for visiting my website. I’m in my first semester of graduate school, studying for a Master’s of Science in Library and Information Science at The Catholic University of America. I recently relocated from New Jersey to the Washington, D.C. area to fulfill my dreams of living, learning and working in one of the top information capitals in the world. I am at the precipice of an incredible journey, and I can’t wait to share it with the world. This website serves a portfolio of my work, and includes a blog where I will chronicle my foray into the exciting field of library and information science.
My background: I began my undergraduate career at Bergen Community College, and graduated with an Associate’s degree in Liberal Arts and a Certificate in United States Studies. I continued my education at Thomas Edison State College and graduated with Bachelor’s degree in Social Sciences. Prior to starting college, I spent 5 years working in retail and financial services settings, focusing on customer service and quality assurance management.
My professional interests include: ensuring egalitarian access to knowledge, providing reference and research services to underserved populations, embedded librarianship in online learning environments, and visitor experience optimization in cultural heritage settings.
I am excited by: the possibilities digitization projects hold in opening access to information repositories, the prospects of providing library services to remote users through technological advances, and the ability to sit in the visitor galleries of both Congress and the Supreme Court to observe debates on issues related to information access.
When I’m not investigating new volunteer and internship opportunities, I’m exploring my new home-city, visiting one of the many Smithsonian museums, the Library of Congress, and my local public library. You can also find me on Twitter @LizLieutenant, on
LinkedIn, or you can send me an email through my Contact page.
