As we approach another new semester (and all the excitement that a fresh start brings!), I’d like to take a moment to introduce our newest team member. Please welcome Sydney Adams to the role of Library Outreach Coordinator. In this role, Sydney will help to connect the Davidson College community to the library’s network of experts, services, and resources. She will foster student engagement with the library, coordinate library outreach efforts, and develop library programming that celebrates the diversity of the Davidson College experience.
Sydney is a recent graduate of the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. At UNC-Chapel Hill, Sydney worked as a graduate assistant at the Park Library where she facilitated information literacy instruction, offered research support, and coordinated outreach for students in the School of Journalism and Media. Sydney also held internships with Duke University Libraries and NC State University Libraries while in library school. She received a Bachelor of Arts in English and Philosophy from Clemson University in 2020. While there, Sydney worked as an outreach intern with Clemson Libraries and developed a passion for connecting students with vital library resources and services. Sydney shares that she is thrilled to join the staff at the E.H. Little Library and bring her experience in outreach and community engagement to Davidson College. Welcome, Sydney: We’re thrilled to have you on-board!
Sydney is an avid home chef and enjoys trying out new and exciting recipes. Otherwise, you may find her sipping an iced coffee and solving the daily Wordle, the daily mini crossword, or a challenging jigsaw puzzle. Sydney enjoys reading Southern Gothic literature and the occasional horror story. Her other interests include caring for her plants, discovering new music, and taking long walks. In the library, you’ll find Sydney (most work days) on the first floor, near the Research & Design Studio. Stop by and say hello!
