Sara Kelley Burriesci began her career in librarianship as a Research Apprentice at the Microsoft Corporate Library immediately after graduating from library school. After that, she worked as a reference librarian at the University of Maryland School of Law for several years. Sara originally joined the Georgetown Law Library in 2004 as a Reference Librarian, then moved in 2007 to working in Electronic Resources and Services. As an ERS librarian, Sara created a study room reservation system, reference desk log, and reference statistics application using XML, Microsoft SQL Server, and Coldfusion. She also updated the library’s static HTML research tutorials to interactive versions using Adobe Captivate.
In 2011, Sara took a break from librarianship to care for her young son. She returned to Georgetown part-time in 2016 as an evening and weekend reference librarian, then returned to full-time status as Empirical Research Services Librarian in January 2020. She is currently pursuing a Master of Education in Measurement, Evaluation, Statistics, and Assessment from the University of Illinois Chicago. In that program she has studied research design, measurement, and multivariate data analysis.
