Meet Our AALL 2015 Orbitz Gift Card Winner: Nicole Dyszlewski


Tell me a little about yourself?  Why did you become a librarian?

I am the new Research/Access Services Librarian at Roger Williams University School of Law in beautiful Bristol, RI. I just moved to Southern New England in January from Maine in hopes of avoiding some of the snow. I became a librarian because I like working with patrons.  


What do you like most about your job as at Roger Williams University School of Law?

My patrons, of course! My second favorite thing about RWU is that we are surrounded by water on nearly every side of the campus.


What is the most common research question of law students?

I am fairly new to RWU and I don’t think I have a good sense of what the most common questions are here, yet. Surprisingly, I have not gotten a single question about the father of religious freedom, Roger Williams!  


Have you used PLI publications for your own research? Which ones?

I particularly like the Answer Book Series. It is like Yahoo Answers…but written by actual experts…


What did you think of AALL 2015? Did you do any sightseeing in Philadelphia?

The AALL Annual Meeting was great. I really enjoyed some of the presentations. As a tourist, I visited Eastern State Penitentiary (at http://www.easternstate.org/) and The Franklin Fountain ( at http://www.franklinfountain.com/).


Tell me about your best vacation ever.

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.


Where do you plan on traveling with your Orbitz gift card?

I don’t know. I’m hoping somewhere relaxing!
