Meet the New Ask Models

Monday, November 28th, 2011

It’s the time of year when we remind you to ASK US FOR HELP with your research papers and final assignments.

We’re here to help you find great resources, to save you time, and to reduce frustration.

Who better to remind you of this down the stretch than our Fall of 2011 Ask Models?

Thanks to all the models for lending their creativity to a good cause and a great message: ASK!

Seriously. Just ask!

Meet the Models

Friday, May 6th, 2011

Over the last four years the UVM Libraries has been lucky to work with a fabulous group of models who have helped us to promote library services – especially our Ask a Librarian service.

A large number of models are graduating this semester. We wanted to take a moment to thank them for being so amazing, funny, smart and goofy, and give them a chance to reflect on being a model, the libraries, and their time at UVM.

We’ll miss seeing you all on campus and wish you the best for the future!

What are you doing after graduation?

I am going to be working this summer in Burlington — part time babysitting for an awesome family and part time as an Artist’s Assistant. I will also to continue to volunteer at the Vermont Worker’s Center and the Healthcare is a Human Right Campaign, play frisbee, and generally chill. After that — who knows? The world is my oyster!

Do you have any thoughts or memories about being a model for the Ask Campaign  that you’d like to share?

It’s always fun when someone wonders why they recognize me but can’t quite place it…till they realize it’s cuz I’ve been scarily smiling down at them in the Cyber Cafe, motivating them to work in the wee hours of the night.

Do you have any thoughts or memories about the UVM Libraries that you’d like to share?

I always run into the most people I know in the lib and thus tend not to be productive there. But I will miss my iso-desk: first floor, by the comfy chairs, the one right by the plugs. If I get that seat, I can post up for hours. I have also, unfortunately, slept in the dear old Bailey/Howe. I think I can count on one hand the amount of times I’ve been up to the second or third floor — my essence is too loud.

What’s your best memory of UVM?

PG Version: the transition to springtime, when it’s warm enough to sit on the steps of the library and hang out between classes or lay out on the green.

Do you have any thoughts or memories about the UVM Libraries that you’d like to share?

I really appreciate the efforts of the staff at UVM Libraries make to help familiarize students with their services.

What’s your best memory of UVM?

I will always remember UVM for the beauty of both the immediate and surrounding area as well as the kindness of the people.

I am currently looking for a job teaching high school social studies!

Do you have any thoughts or memories about being a model for the Ask Campaign  that you’d like to share?

I loved seeing the poses that the other models being photographed before me were doing. There were a lot of creative students on campus. The atmosphere on campus that day was very light and playful, so it was lots of fun.

Do you have any thoughts or memories about the UVM Libraries that you’d like to share?

My clearest memories at Bailey/Howe always involved stealthily waiting for enough chairs on the ground floor to open up doing end-of-term group project meetings, and then pouncing on them once the previous occupant had left. I also remember the librarians being very helpful whenever I got lost looking for a seemingly obscure book on the third floor.
