Your First-year Personal Librarian is Jill Hallam-Miller.
Jill is the librarian for the College of Management, and for the Education, Religion, and Philosophy Departments. She enjoys meeting with students in the classroom and in consultations to help them with research and information problems. She is an advocate for the use of open educational practices on campus, and loves to talk about open pedagogy, open licensing, and giving students agency over their education through open practices.
One of her interests is in finding ways to enhance teaching and learning through the use of technology, but she acknowledges that we shouldn’t use technology for its own sake, and that technology isn’t always the best solution.
Jill serves as a volunteer dog trainer, and is taking steps to become a certified professional dog trainer. She is an AKC Canine Good Citizen and Tricks evaluator. She and her husband enjoy hiking with their three Australian Shepherds, Odin, Granite, and Taylor. Jill spends a lot of time training (and being trained by) her dogs and participating in a variety of dog events with them.
