Meet the Staff: Willow Fuchs!

Staff Profile: Willow Fuchs, Business Reference and Instruction Librarian

A little about yourself. 
I go into a lot of different classes to help students understand what information and resources are available to them through the library.
How long have you been working at the Biz Hub? 
I have been working here at the Library since 2014.

What’s your favorite food?
I love Mexican food in all forms – La Regia and El Banditos are probably my faves locally.

How do you spend your time off? 
I have a busy life away from work, with two little boys at home that keep me very busy.  I also like to run for exercise when I can.

Which aspect of the Biz Hub do you think U Iowa business students should most take advantage of? 
In my biased opinion, you should take advantage of the people that are here to help you. Please come see me if you need research help!

Any book recommendations?
I mostly read Children’s books at home, with my small ones.

Bulky laptop dragging you down? Introducing TechGuard Locker Bay

Notice anything new in the Biz Hub this semester? Since our ritzy remodel last semester, the Biz Hub has been getting even more in sync with what students and faculty need. For those of you who might spend an entire afternoon in the business building, this new addition really comes as a relief. Enter, the Tech Guard Locker Bay.  
Rounding out at ten lockers total, each handy compartment comes complete with an AC outlet and USB port, so you can charge while you store!  
For reference, these sleek new lockers are stacked nearest to the C337 Team Room, at the south entrance of the Biz Hub space. Easy to use instructions are located on the side of the lockers, as they are self-serve. All available lockers are lit in green and those in-use are in red. Simply create (and make a note of) a four-digit numerical password and enjoy!
