We Thank Our 2016 Library Ambassadors

A huge thanks to our inaugural cohort of Library Ambassadors! The ambassadors — all of whom are library student employees — visited USTD 100 classes, highlighting key resources and showing first-year students how to get research help.

We thank our Library Ambassadors for all of their hard work and for representing the Pfau Library amongst their peers!
