Reflections on DUX

After working as a graduate assistant in DUX for the past 2 semesters, it’s time for me to spread my wings and fly the nest.  This will be my last post for reDUX, and I thought it would be appropriate to give the department a sophisticated farewell in the form of a Shakespearean sonnet.

An Ode to DUX

On the fifth floor of Wells, in cubicle land
a department called DUX makes its abode.
And if you are ever in need of a hand
with websites, or widgets, or finicky code,
call Courtney, or Garrett, or Mary, or Anne
to fix it right up and give you some peace.
They’ll make every effort they possibly can
as user experience is their expertise.
Discovery, Blacklight, mobile, and more,
all with a public services bent.
Seamless computing is at DUX’s core,
not to mention the finest web content.
Farewell to ye, DUXors. I’ll fondly look back
on my time here in DUX with a grin and a quack!

In all seriousness, the opportunities I have had as part of this department have been invaluable.  I will most certainly be taking them with me as I start the next chapter of my life in my first job as a librarian.
