November member profile is of Rhiannon Jones, Business Liaison at the University of Calgary.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I spend quite a bit of my free time working on various creative writing projects. I tend to write creative non fiction, but a friend of mine has convinced me to try and write a novel. It should only take me about 50 years to write.
I also enjoy baking and cooking. I joined the sourdough bandwagon late, but I make a mean batch of sourdough brownies.
What would you be if you weren’t a librarian?
I’d probably still be a bartender if I wasn’t a librarian. Surprisingly, the skill sets overlap quite a bit.
What are you most excited to be working on right now?
Although it isn’t part of my regular job duties, I started teaching an undergraduate education course. I love this because it is pushing me out of my comfort zone and forcing me to learn new skills.
What are your research interests?
I am interested in investigating how students with ADHD and other learning disabilities navigate research tasks. I am also working on a review of academic libraries and mental health supports with a colleague.
Weigh in: is CAPAL pronounced ‘capple’ or ‘ca-pal’?
