"Find out what happens after the physical library closes," Fisher, of UT—Austin, says. "Is the website easy to navigate? How easy is it to access all the great information that the school's library system has?"
A big part of Fisher's job is showing new students how to use the UT library system. She helps students get comfortable with their new academic atmosphere.
