As a graduate student I worked with the Reference department and the Creole and Cajun Music Center in the Edith
Garland Dupre Library.
In this job I had multiple responsibilities for each position.
At the reference department my
main responsibility was to act as the night reference librarian.
I worked late hours at the reference desk and assisted
any students or faculty who came by and needed assistance with research, finding materials, or accessing and using the
Patrons could also contact the reference desk using the phone and an instant messaging program and
so I had to be ready to assist any patrons through those two lines of inquiry as well.
At the Creole and Cajun Music Center I worked as an assistant in the archives as well as with the government
My responsibilities were to document the archival holdings using primarily Microsoft Excel, clean and
maintain the items that were held in the archives, as well as assist with any displays or refurbishing projects that took
place while I was working.
It is this workspace where I gained most of my data-entry and filing experience as I spent
most of my time filing the records that were held at the Creole and Cajun Music Center, as well as where I spent much of
my time inputting the Titles, Authors, and index number of the government document and archival holdings.

Dear Selection Committee members,
I am writing to express my interest in the Circulation Supervisor position with the Sacramento
While pursuing my Master's Degree in English with a focus in Folklore studies, I
served as graduate assistant at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette Library.
In this position, I
worked at the library's reference desk and in the special collections area.
My work at the
reference desk involved providing customer service to library patrons, including students,
faculty members and others to assist them in locating materials in the library collections and
through reference databases including JSTOR, EBSCOhost, ProjectMuse, and etc.
My work in
the special collections area involved filing and sorting historical records, and assisting the
archivists I worked for in maintaining the historical records.
I thoroughly enjoyed my work in
the library and decided through my experience there that my true career interest was in library
science rather than in English literature.
I am currently exploring Master's degree programs in
Library and Information Sciences and plan to enter a program MLIS program in Fall 2016.
The position of Circulation Supervisor with the Sacramento Public Library will provide me with
the opportunity to further develop my skills and expertise in providing library services while I
am pursuing my MLIS.
I believe that I am uniquely qualified for the Circulation Supervisor
position and appreciate your consideration of my application.
If other positions are available in
the Sacramento Public Library System that would fit my qualifications and allow me to develop
my skills toward my future career aspirations, I would appreciate your consideration for those
positions as well.

During the senior year of my undergraduate degree I worked as a student assistant at the writing lab for the University
of Louisiana at Lafayette.
My responsibilities for this job were too take appointments with students who were struggling
with papers and help them on their writing abilities.
I would often help students through the whole process and
concentrated on teaching the students helpful brainstorming and research processes so that they would eventually be
able to confidently write by themselves.
Through this job I was able to help many students feel more confident about
their writing abilities.
