Two students in the University of Denver Library and Information Science Program have become the latest members of the LRS staff. They are Michele Kolman-Weber and Jessica Sturgill. They join two other current DU LIS students, Don Dickenson and Claire Williamson.
The LRS is a unit of the Colorado State Library that has been operated in partnership with the DU LIS Program since 1996. As part of that partnership, the LRS provides paid internships to two to five DU students each year. An ever-growing cadre of LRS alumnae now hold important posts in the library community throughout Colorado, in other states and Washington, D.C., and overseas.
