On September 27, the Wyoming State Library welcomed Shantry Miller to our staff. Shantry has joined us as the Bibliographic Services Librarian on the WYLD Support Team. Most recently, she worked as a Technical Services Librarian for a nursing and health sciences college for four years.
“This position is closely related to my last one,” she said. “I like that it will involve attention to detail, maintaining the quality of the database, and providing support and training for other librarians.”
Originally from Iowa, Shantry recently moved to Wyoming from Illinois. She began working part-time in public libraries in high school and continued through college. She taught high school Spanish for four years after she earned her Bachelor of Arts in Spanish with education endorsements from Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa. She plans to graduate this December with her Master of Science in Library and Information Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
“I’m excited to work at the Wyoming State Library,” Shantry said. “I look forward to learning all aspects of my new position and also getting to know librarians from around the state and being able to support them.”
