The Wyoming State Library welcomes Danielle Price as our new Digital Initiatives Librarian in the Information Services office. She will work primarily with digital state documents.
“Danielle’s a great addition to our team with her reference experience and eagerness to learn,” said Abby Beaver, WSL Information Services Manager. “We’re very excited to see what new skills and ideas she brings to the library and to her position.”
Danielle lived in Douglas as a child and says she has “many happy memories of Wyoming—summer outings to Ayres Natural Bridge Park, winters in the snow, even the wind.” After relocating to Tucson, she fell into library work when she found a job as a library assistant at a local high school and loved it right away.
She went back to school and earned her Master’s in Information Resources and Library Science at the University of Arizona in Tucson. After graduating, she took a job as a reference librarian at the main branch of the Jefferson Parish Library in Metairie, Louisiana. She was there for two years before she decided to join the WSL.
“I’ve taken classes in digital librarianship and government documents, and thought this job would provide a new challenge,” she said. “After I learn my position and what it requires, I would like to find new ways to help the library grow as I do.”
