Library Practicum Student: Teresa Wells

We are excited to have Teresa Wells, our newest intern from University of Denver’s Masters in Library & Information Science Program! We’re very grateful that Teresa has chosen the Health Sciences Library for her 100-hour practicum over Spring Quarter 2015.

Teresa’s project involves creating more visually-interesting Special Collections pages for the Health Sciences Library. The current special collections pages include the title and description of each collection. The library is interested in a more creative and visually-appealing display that includes images to highlight the various collections.

Teresa will be working with Vivienne Houghton, Web Services Librarian and Cathalina Fontenelle, Web Applications Developer. She will be using the Drupal content management system. Vivienne will be proctoring her project.
