Student Worker at Cowan-Blakely Memorial Library

Includes the same responsibilities as a work study student worker, but also during our full-time summer hours we worked on these projects:

-Maintained an assigned floor of the library throughout the summer

-Shifted a dozen bookcases worth of books to make space for a new room in the library

-Moved several bookcases worth of books to closed stacks in a different building for storage

-Relabeled several bookcases worth of books

-Was assigned the barcodes of 6000 books to be manually and individually entered into the system for recategorization. Instead of doing that, I spent two days in my free time developing software that would do it for me. Upon its release, I surprised my supervisors by completing the weeks-long task in but half an hour for the computer. I distributed the program among the departments of the library and taught them how to use it, where it continues to save hours of tedious work for everyone.

A research project into the geometric structures of glucose and water. From the research I conducted, I created an accurate 3D model of water and glucose, utilizing the correct distance, angles, and sizes (as best science can yet determine).

I presented my findings to the class. Attached is the video showcase of the 3D models and a link to my annotated bibliography.
