Catching Up With Past Student Hourly Employees: Amy Summer

Here at the Center for Digital Scholarship we have been lucky to work with some very dedicated, creative, and knowledgeable IUPUI students. These students have played a huge part in the building of our collections through scanning, metadata creation, and even digital photography. Let's find out what some past student workers are doing now!

I’m currently working as a Research Librarian for the full-service law firm Faegre Baker Daniels LLP. I started at the Indianapolis location in May 2013, then voluntarily transferred out to the Denver office in November 2013 for a change of scenery. (And Denver is fantastic!) The library teams assists any FaegreBD personnel with legal research, business development and marketing projects, interlibrary loans, literature reviews, due diligence reports, and a variety of other requests.

During my library school years at IUPUI-SLIS (now the Department of Library and Information Science), I worked as a Library Assistant for the Indiana Attorney General’s Office and then as a Library Assistant for the law firm Barnes & Thornburg LLP. In addition, I worked one semester for IUPUI’s Digital Scholarship Team, where I assisted team members on assorted digitization projects for local agencies. Upon graduation in May 2012 I worked as a Reference Librarian for the Indiana State Library for a year, where I primarily focused on the Indiana and newspaper collections, helping with various long-term cataloging, digitization, and collection management projects.
