Just this week, I learned that I will have a new opportunity this quarter. I am embedded librarian in a service-learning interdisciplinary course, UH 202-203: Environmental and Social Sustainability in Appalachia. This will include a 6-day service trip to Southeast Ohio, an area hard-hit by coal mining and economic struggles, to work with several community partners over our spring break. And, yes, I'm going on the trip! In fact, we may partner with one of the Athens County Public Libraries to complete a service project for them as well.
