Miguel Nieves

Miguel Nieves in 2018 with KU President Kenneth Hawkinson and Director of Library Services Martha StevensonMiguel has been working in STEAMworks since early 2017, and in the Rohrbach Library for about 20 years. He is a Library Technician and has a Bachelor's in Communication with a concentration in Journalism, History, and Art. Here he has the opportunities to work with students and faculty in a multitude of projects. To Miguel, STEAMworks can be challenging because it encompasses many disciplines, but this is also one of the top attributes of STEAMworks, because you are always sharing and learning.


Bruce Jensen

Bruce Jensen in the stacksBruce studied literature at the University of Washington (it was lit!) in Seattle, then earned graduate degrees in linguistics & language teaching (Flagstaff, Northern Arizona University) and library stuff (UCLA) along with coursework in Spanish, anthropology, and Latin American studies.

 

Bruce and his son posing with a Reggie Watts sign in MunichThe photo at right, snapped by someone he loves (the mother of the lil' boy on Reggie Watts's left; ditto) reveals some of his passions: clever hardworking musicians, travel, and dopey hats.

 

Bruce grew up in a bygone era long before color photography was a thing. The artist's rendering below captures a younger and jollier version of him busy with something he used to do in halcyon days of a forgotten century: haunting libraries reading books.sketch of Bruce Jensen reading

What's this?   
An infrared motion detector logs people passing in and out. Not a count of unique humans who visit STEAMworks, but a useful time-based tally of traffic through the door from day to day.

MISSION

To encourage discovery, creation, and learning—beyond the conventional—by supplying. tools, inspiration, and know-how to spark the making, exploring, failing, sharing,trying-again, teaching and experiencing that make for a rich education.
