The Wyoming State Library welcomes Cori Hundley to the WYLD office as systems librarian. This position provides technical support for the SirsiDynix Symphony library system with a focus on circulation and public access, while also working with the GoWYLD databases to resolve technical issues.
Cori has a BA in history from the Ohio State University, and an MLIS from Kent State University. After college, she spent time working at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. and for Alaska Mountain Guides in Skagway, Alaska before spending the past five years as Assistant Librarian – Public Services Librarian at Central Wyoming College in Riverton, Wyoming.
“We’re very excited to have Cori join our team,” WYLD Program Manager Desiree Saunders said. “She brings experience from an academic library as well as knowledge of the WYLD network and Wyoming libraries in general.”
Cori said her experience with the IT helpdesk at CWC allowed her to learn a lot about technical support and how much she enjoys the technical side of library sciences. “I always had positive interactions with the WYLD staff, so when the opportunity to join such a wonderful team presented itself, I couldn’t pass up the chance.”
Cori hopes to provide excellent library and technical support to the entire Wyoming library system in her new position. She is excited to learn more about the back-end of the systems that are integral to the flow of information, access, and all the services libraries provide. “I love the mission of all libraries and I’m excited to be part of a team that provides such an important service to those that serve on the ‘front lines’ of library work. It’s an honor to be here.”
An outdoorswoman and hiking enthusiast, Cori also dabbles in martial arts, running, yoga, and rock climbing. She is also a big fan of Marvel, Tamora Pierce, and fantasy novels.
