Virtual reality, 3D-printing, models of brains and bones – these are just a few of the things that Dorothy Ogdon (’07) is dealing with on a regular basis. And she’s a librarian.
Of course, she’s not your typical librarian. Currently she is the emerging technologies librarian at the University of Alabama, Birmingham. It’s a new position at the library wherein Ogdon creates and oversees innovative programs and resources.
Ogdon said the inception of her technology ventures at the library started when a student asked if the library had a skeleton to borrow in order to study it.
