In May, Wyoming State Library employee Angela Wolff earned her Master of Library and Information Science degree, with a concentration was in management, digitization and preservation of cultural heritage. She began working on her MLIS in fall 2012 and joined the WSL staff as a library technician in September 2014. “I loved learning about special collections and preserving cultural resources, but I also enjoyed learning about programming library services and teaching information literacy,” she said. Her final semester’s project was a lengthy 100+ page electronic portfolio demonstrating her competency in in every area of librarianship, her work fueled by “at least one bag of Ghirardelli chocolate squares per week for 16 weeks.”
