Auburn University Libraries
Senior, Interdisciplinary Studies – Business and Community and Civic Engagement
Originally, I thought a library was simply a physical place to study. Today, I realize how my learning has been shaped directly by the availability of the services provided by Auburn University Libraries.
As an interdisciplinary studies major, I have created a unique plan of study that corresponds to my career interests. Auburn University Libraries have become crucial to furthering my knowledge both within and outside of the classroom. The research databases and subject specialist librarians have been the most beneficial resources for my studies. I cannot emphasize adequately how grateful I am for our librarians’ constant availability and helpfulness. Regardless of where I am located, I can chat online or text our librarians for reference advice, and I know they will direct me to pertinent and current information that enhances my studies.
The Auburn University Libraries have enriched my learning experience, and I rarely find a day when my studies don’t benefit from the amazing resources provided there. The services they provide are the roots to academic success for all students.

My mom took me to libraries as a young boy. Libraries exposed me to the world, to history, to communication, and to possibilities. In high school, the librarian was my friend. At Auburn, my love of libraries grew. During respites from my role as an athlete, I escaped to the quiet of the library, respecting the common quest for knowledge and the endless possibilities.
To this day, Auburn University Libraries are my comfort zone. For me, they are the future — a discovery zone for students, faculty, administrators, alumni, and many others. There is a little something there for all of us. When I’m on campus now, I’ll sometimes walk through the main library, smiling in silence. When I leave, I know I’ll always leave a little part of my heart there.
