About Laura

While on research leave with us from George Washington University Libraries External, Laura explored our loc.gov API, writing documentation and tutorials, and demonstrating untraditional ways to explore our digital collections. As a software development librarian, her work centers on connecting people with the resources they need, whether that’s linking them to collections online or helping them build skills to further their research.
