Amy Sutherland is originally from Woodstock, NB and attended St. Thomas University in Fredericton, NB, where she studied English with Honours.
Amy came to Dal because she wanted to stay within the Maritimes for grad school. She also really liked the fact that the Dal MLIS program offers courses in children and youth services.
“This summer I have been helping the library prepare for its upcoming move by creating a video (Kellogg on the Move) and weeding our collection. I’ve also been working on the reference and circulation desks, while also covering some Document Delivery shifts,” says Amy. “I’ve edited LibGuides, helped to create a Citations Managers LibGuide, and created two videos about finding health statistics and data. I have also been helping Robin Parker with a systematic review.”
After graduation, Amy hopes to work in a library, either public or academic. “I’d love to stay in the Maritimes, but ultimately I’ll go wherever my work takes me. At the end of the day, I’ll be satisfied if I can help people fulfill their information needs.” says Amy.
