Students helping students
Aracely Rodriguez, an undergraduate from Pharr, Texas, is not your typical librarian. As a student, she is reaching out to others and helping them use the library to its fullest extent. “To support students today, there are so many technologies available here, and it can be a challenge to navigate,” she says.
“I really enjoy helping. Seeing other students benefit from my help gives me a sense of accomplishment.”

As part of the Library Peer Coaches Program, Aracely is learning information literacy and research skills, partnering with librarian mentors and working in the library as a frontline resource for her peers. “I really enjoy helping. Seeing other students benefit from my help gives me a sense of accomplishment.”
A generous gift from the Hearst Foundation has made the program possible. Such support is vital to ensure our students and faculty are prepared to learn and study in our technologically advanced world.
