Margot Cuddihy, MSLIS ’23

Margot, a white woman with shoulder-length strawberry blonde hair and brown glasses.

Hi everyone! My name is Margot. I came into this program immediately after wrapping up my BMA in Musical Arts/International Studies at Roosevelt University in Chicago. My main interests within the field are reference and instruction, particularly in an academic and/or government library setting, as well as disability accessibility and inclusion for both patrons and librarians. Originally from Upstate New York, I love spending time outside, particularly through hiking and running! Check out my blog posts below to follow along with me on my journey to graduation
