Hi there! My name is Emilie Buckley and I'll be your librarian for this course. While I typically work at the Lake Nona Campus, this semester I look forward to meeting with students online and finding new ways to collaborate.

A little about me: I was raised by a history professor and enjoy trivia and sharing obscure facts because that's what makes history come alive. WWI gets more interesting when you find out about Henry Ford's failed Peace Ship and that George Washinton's teeth aren't just made of wood.
