Library student worker Miranda McLain was recently named the Point News Editor-in-Chief. At the Point News, she has work her way up from assistant editor as a first year student, to Arts and Entertainment editor, and finally Editor-in-Chief.
Miranda is currently a Senior English and Political Science double major, with a minor in Ed. Studies, working on an SMP to write a series of political, creative non-fiction, long form articles in which she interviews campus speakers and alumni to find out how their college experiences led them to their current field.
Miranda has worked in the Library as a circulation assistant since Fall of 2015. She volunteered at her school library in high school and thought the SMCM Library job would be a great way to stay involved on campus as a commuter student.
As a student worker, Miranda enjoys getting to talk to a lot of different people, and learning about the wide variety of classes and SMP topics while she helps people search for books in the collection.
The second floor overlooking the river is now an official “Quiet Study Space.”
Through these methods, we learned that many students come to the library specifically for quiet study spaces. Responses identified the area overlooking the river (officially called the Reeves-Garner Reading Room) as the preferred place to create our first official quiet study space.
The first floor, third floor bean bag room, and group study rooms are still available for group work and other forms of “unquiet” study.
If you have questions about the new quiet study area, please contact Kate Pitcher, Director of the Library, Archives and Media Center.
