Meet the Graduate Assistants: Isaac Wink

We’re excited to introduce you to another wonderful iSchool Help Desk Graduate Assistant today, this time a familiar face in the Meet the Help Desk GAs series! We quizzed Isaac Wink on his go-to board game, favourite campus hang-out spot, and his job (!) plans after graduation.

Isaac is an Illinois native from Burban and a second-year graduate student in his last semester at the iSchool. As an MSLIS student, he was interested in pursuing academic librarianship, digital humanities, and lowering barriers to technology. After graduation, Isaac will be working as a Research Data Librarian at the University of Kentucky. He’s very excited for it!
