Kindle Fire Winner @KSL
KSL is pleased to announce the winner of the Kindle Fire, drawn from graduate students' names who participated in KSL focus groups in late January & early February. Christina Larson, Ph.D. student in Art History, is our winner and she looks forward to some personal reading on her new device.
Christina started her Ph.D. program in 2007, after completing her Masters degree at Case. Talking with librarians Catherine Wells and Brian Gray (pictured) after her award presentation, she remarked that "KSL has come a long way in the last couple of years." When asked what she and her focus group peers found most appealing, she quickly said "We are excited about the room we were in... a special place" where graduates can work together. Focus groups were held in the 2nd floor Graduate Research Commons Room.
Christina's focus is the artist Paul Sample, an American regional painter of the early 20th century. Her career interests are aimed at a museum role as well as teaching, and she has found the Cleveland Museum of Art an integral part of her academic life here. A former student assistant in KSL's Special Collections Department, she's well versed in using information resources to her advantage, and we wish her luck as she completes her dissertation.
Kelvin Smith Library staff thanks all the graduate students who signed up and generously shared their knowledge, opinions, and comments about their research today as well as for the future at KSL and Case.
