Getting to Know…Jamie Marie Keller-Aschenbach
Q.1. What is your job title?
Jamie: My job title is Head of Research and Access Services
Q. 2. Where do you work and how long have you worked there?
Jamie: I’ve worked here at Florida Coastal School of Law for a little over 5 years. Prior to that, I’ve worked in law firms and engineering firms conducting knowledge management and competitive intelligence research.
Q.3. What are your main job duties and how are you embedded?
Jamie: I do a bit of everything library and IT related! I supervise student workers on the combined circulation, reference, and IT help desk. I’m ultimately responsible for all circulation and reference duties, though most of it I delegate to my student workers. I am also an academic advisor and teach a 3-credit Advanced Legal Research course at least once a year.
I work closely with the clinics, moot court team, and mock trial team conducting research training at the beginning of each semester.
I’m truly embedded in our law review. I hold office hours in the law review office mid-day Thursdays and in the evenings Mondays and Tuesdays where I assist with everything from Bluebook citations to ILLs to evaluating sources.
Q.4. How did you get your job?
Jamie: By being forcefully helpful! Really, that’s all it took.
