Morton College Library is pleased to welcome its newest additions to the staff! Christina Goings and Nick Casas both joined the library in September as Reference Librarians.
Christina Goings received a BA in history from Eastern Illinois University in 2009, with a specific interest in Public History, Cultural History (pre-1945), and British History and Culture. In addition to studying at EIU, she spent four months studying Early Medieval Kingship, Victorian Culture, and Women’s History at the University of Winchester in Winchester, UK. After graduating, she spent several months as a volunteer at the Illinois State Museum Research and Collection Center in Springfield, IL, where she worked on the Audio-Video Barn Oral History Project. Christina recently completed her Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) degree at Dominican University, where she focused on Archival Administration, Archival Conservation, Metadata, and Digital Media. While at Dominican, she did a fieldwork study at the Forest Park Historical Society Archives, where she helped with the evaluation of the newly reformed collection and created recommendations for the Society’s future collection development, weeding policies, and finding aids.  Now that Christina is at Morton College Library, she’s excited to provide reference services, further develop the library’s resource collection, and help with the Hawthorne Works Museum. 
Nick Casas graduated with his Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) from Dominican University this past May. In the past he has interned at Northbrook Public Library as a Multimedia Librarian assisting patrons with music CDs, DVDs, and musical scores. Along with Morton College, Nick currently works as a stack management assistant at Center for Research Libraries in Hyde Park, Chicago, working with rare newspapers, medical journals, and other serials. When in the library, Nick likes helping students find books and materials they need for a paper or even for leisure reading. His ultimate goal is to have each student at Morton College understand the research process so they may continue those skills into their future college and occupational careers.
Welcome, Nick and Christina!
