Meet the Graduate Assistants: Adam Hathaway

Continuing our Spring 2023 run of the Meet the Graduate Assistants series for the iSchool Help Desk, we have another spectacular GA spotlight for today: Adam Hathaway! We harangued Adam to get the scoop on the best board game, his favourite spot in Champaign-Urbana, and the new instruction tech tools he’s most excited about.


Adam, a man with short brown hair, smiles.

Adam came to the iSchool from Scandia, Minnesota, where his favourite part is the lakes. He is a second-year MSLIS student in his last semester, interested in working in a public or academic library upon graduation.
