Keep an eye out for these ladies and gentleman in Las Vegas, they will be asking to take your picture for Librarian Wardrobe. They will also have LW buttons to confirm they are photographers for the blog.
Bios follow with some information about what catches their eye. If asked to have your picture taken, and you agree, they will need some information: your position title or student/other status, type of library/museum/archive/etc, and location (state if in the USA, or country if outside).
The photos above, from top down, are:
Aisha Conner-Gaten. Aisha is a recent MSLIS grad and the Computer-Assisted Instruction Specialist at GSLIS at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She is a master of the webcam selfie and has since learned that setting up tech (crawling under desks, finding ethernet ports, etc.) and wearing skirts do not mix.
Isabel Gonzalez-Smith. Isabel is an Academic Resident Librarian at her alma mater, the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC), in reference and instruction. She has two black cats, wanderlust, an endless appetite for Chicago hot dogs, and an obsession with photo booths. Follow her on Twitter at @Isa__GS.
Matthew Windsor. Matthew is the systems and media services librarian for Hendrix College, a small liberal arts school in central Arkansas. He completed the LIS program at Drexel University and is currently finishing his last semester in the MSIS program.
Kaity Bequette. Kaity is a recent grad of the GSLIS program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and currently works full-time as a Helpdesk Specialist at the College of Engineering on the same campus. She likes to call herself a “Sleeper Cell Librarian”. “After all, a Helpdesk is just a reference desk that specializes in technology!”
Sharon McKellar. Sharon is the Community Relations Librarian for the Oakland Public Library in California. An excited member of the 2015 Caldecott Committee and a master of layering, she will be on the lookout for the best patterns and most awesome shoes in Vegas.

Jaime Hammond. Jaime is a community college library director, interested in retention, outreach, library spaces, innovation and can be found on Twitter as @trudysmoke.

Dana Skwirut. Dana is a Youth Services librarian in central New Jersey. She is active in the Tumblarian community and on Twitter, where her sass got her featured in School Library Journal.
