Some selected projects worked on during my time at the Penn State University Libraries.

Digital Survival Guide

The Digital Survival Guide was created to compliment the Penn State Reads 2016 selection, The Circle, by Dave Eggers. This guide is designed to help incoming freshman think about their digital footprint and how they can tighten their security on the internet. Hailley worked on this project with two Penn State Reads interns, who had collected the information in the guide. Together, they used Canva to create the final product.

Post-Election LibGuide

Post-Election 2016 LibGuide

In the wake of the 2016 election, Penn State's President Eric Barron sent an email to the PSU community. It called for creating spaces that encouraged dialogue. With that email in mind and a little encouragement from one of my bosses, I spent the two weeks after the election collecting reactions to create this LibGuide. It's a mix of both national reactions, context for the election (including the media's influence and how voting works in America) along with some Penn State specific resources.


Bi-weekly staff newsletters, 2016-2017 school year

Based on feedback from staff, Hailley created two bi-weekly newsletters that are intended to build community among co-workers, increase communication, and more broadly share information on policies, reference skills, announcements, and upcoming events. Pattee & Me goes to Service Desk wage employees and Common Services full-time staff while Library Welcome goes to all employees who sit at a Welcome Desk. The newsletters reach around 100 library employees.
