Emory’s university librarian sees ‘endless’ possibilities for libraries, technology

“It was while working in the graduate library at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign that Yolanda Cooper felt her first stirrings around the idea of building a career within academic libraries. She was a college student at the time, and though she’d grown up in a family that valued books and reading, there was something about the stately brick building, with its millions of volumes, special collections and cavernous reading rooms, that Cooper found especially inspiring. She had arrived at a historic moment, as the library — one of the nation’s largest university research libraries at the time — was just beginning to enter the world of automation, among the first university libraries in the U.S. to offer an online catalog.” (via Emory University)
