An important facet of library school is to engage in collaborative learning, so each one of the LISSA officers is willing to share information with you or help you out in any possible way. Graduate School can make learning a pretty remote, isolating process, especially in comparison to undergraduate life with clubs and student organizations constantly surrounding you, but LISSA strives to be a presence/resource that fosters student interaction, scholarship, and friendship.

My name is Chase Hanes and I’m interested in bringing feminism to all libraries. I live in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and am focusing on special collections, academic libraries, and bibliotherapy. Like many library lovers, I received my BA in English Literature. While in undergrad at Chapel Hill, I minored in Art History and Creative Writing as well. Outside of the library world, my loves include oil painting, dogs, creative writing, reading (especially the Bronte sisters!), sculpture, Downton Abbey, and Women’s/Gender Studies…but I am all for dismantling the status quo and bringing all of these loves/interests into the library sphere as well!

Treasurer – Lillian Carden
