Get to Know Vaughn Stewart! [September 2023]

Title: Library Technology Manager

 Library/Department: Digital Strategies and Technology

 Location: Bostock (Room 033 in the DST suite if you want to come see all the tech off casts that accumulate in my office)

 Years at Duke: 1 year and a few months

 In a nutshell: I work with staff computing and AV spaces along with all the budgeting, policies, and workflows that come with them.

 Best part of my job: You know when you get a new electronic device that has the protective plastic on it and there’s a little thrill of peeling it off? I get to do that a lot. But seriously, I think the best part of my job is that I get to work with every department across DUL. The Libraries are full of amazing people, and it’s a joy to get to work with everyone.

 Best thing I’ve read/watched/listened to recently: I’m a little late to the party, but I recently watched Grey Gardens for the first time and loved it.

 Like about living in The Triangle: There are so many great restaurants here that I know I’ll never run out of ones to explore.

 Like to do outside of work: When I have the time, I like to build things or work on the house. I also enjoy playing video games and have been working through Tears of the Kingdom for a while now.
