Originally from Indianapolis and armed with an undergraduate degree from Indiana University, Fannie's first real job was at Kentucky State University (KSU), as a Library Assistant in Government Documents, circulation, stack maintainance, ILL, reference and acquisitions. While at KSU, she won a National Science Foundation Fellowship to pursue a Masters degree in Public Administration (MPA) with specializations in Information Systems and Human Resources. After KSU, Fannie was determined to return to Indianapolis and applied for a position with the Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library (I-MCPL), where she started part-time in Children Services, then full-time in the Order Section (Acquisitions) and Cataloging. Fannie also did some moonlighting at the IUPUI Ruth Lilly Medical and Research Library on a serials cleanup project after NOTIS was installed. Upon completion of the cleanup project, the University Library at IUPUI advertised a newly created position for a someone to be responsible for the Federal Depository Library Program (FDLP) compliance, processing and bibliographic control of the Government Documents Collection. Fannie was the lucky one to get that position and was also the liaison between Public and Technical Services. A short time later, MARCIVE was choosen to supply the Library with both restropective and current tapeloads of bibliographic records for the government documents, a project which Fannie oversaw for several years.
Also while at IUPUI, Fannie pursued her graduate degree in Library Science graduating in May 1998 with an MLS. But, before graduating, Fannie did an Internship on the Digitial Libraries Team also at IUPUI creating subject web pages. These pages are still available at http://www.ulib.iupui.edu/subjectareas/art/art.shtml
For fun, Fannie likes attending music festivals and one day hopes to pick up her hobbies again of playing the violin and photography.

Before leaving the Emergency Psychiatry Department to come to work for Ms. Rader, University Librarian, Jessie worked at Kornhauser Library and Ekstrom Library. So, she is not exactly "new" to the Libraries. Most all of Jessie's free time is spent with her family. Jessie, Mark and their son Simon share their home with two cats (Mimi and Rudy), a dog (Sam Moe/Sammy) and three fish (Sparky, Goldie and Cleo).
Before coming to the Ekstrom Library, Martha spent most of her post college time in business, either in sales or management - or both! She has worked in retail and as a manufacturer's representative selling a line of greeting cards and gift wrap. At one point she and her husband owned a shoe store in Cincinnati.
Martha grew up in Lafayette, Indiana and graduated from Ball State University with a triple minor in History, Sociology, and Library Science.
Martha lives in Middletown with her husband and younger son. Her older son has blessed her with a lovely daughter-in-law and a beautiful granddaughter along with a step-grandson who is adorable. Her husband is in the last stage of completing his Doctorate in Education.
