Spotlight on Student Workers: Elizabeth Sharpe

Student worker Elizabeth (Beth) Sharpe has seen many changes in the four years she has worked in Media Resources/Edlab, and the Library would like to recognize her hard work and adaptability during this time.  

Beth, who resides in Forest City but is originally from Scranton, is a Biology major who will be graduating this June.  She is an enthusiastic worker whose skills have grown with the advances in the delivery of media. In addition to helping patrons find the materials they need and keeping the stacks in order, Beth can create a clip or a playlist from the licensed streaming video collections. 

In her free time Beth enjoys swimming, reading and photography.  She studied in Florence and Rome in 2013 and had the opportunity to photograph magnificent sculptures, buildings and landscapes. Her favorite book is The Art of Racing in the Rain and her favorite film is The Princess Bride.  Beth regularly attends the International Film Series and she finds previewing films she might not otherwise have the opportunity to see the most enjoyable part of her job.

Two of Beth’s favorite professors are Dr. Michael Carey and Dr. Janice Voltzow and her favorite class was Animal Behavior.  Beth plans to continue her studies with the career goal of teaching at the university level.

Thank you for your hard work Beth and congratulations on your upcoming graduation!
