Tates Creek senior interns at UK Libraries

Evelyn Howard
Evelyn C. Howard, a senior at Tates Creek High School in Lexington, recently completed a two-month internship in the William T. Young Library Reference Services Department. As part of the Fayette County Public Schools Experienced-Based Career Education (EBCE) Program, Evelyn observed work at the reference desk and a library instruction session, researched books and videos for a collection development project, and created an online research guide incorporating information from books, databases, and other library resources. Jennifer Bartlett, head of Reference Services, supervised the internship and Evelyn also had the opportunity to work with Carla Cantagallo, head of Distance Learning Library Services; Debbie Sharp, Information Literacy coordinator; and Christie Peters, head of the Science Library and eScience Initiatives. UK Libraries frequently participates in the EBCE program, which offers high school seniors academic credit while learning about a variety of careers through hands-on experience.
