Rachel Little became the Reference Librarian for the Baylor Law Library in June 2010. She is responsible for providing research and reference services to the faculty and students of the Law School, the University, the legal community, and the general public. She additionally assists with legal research instruction and oversees the library's public services department.
Rachel has a bachelor's degree in International Political Economy from the University of Puget Sound and earned her J.D. from the University of Houston, where she won two awards for scholastic excellence in legal research and writing. She practiced immigration law with Tindall & Foster P.C. (now FosterQuan LLP) in Houston for two and a half years. Rachel later returned to graduate school and completed her Master of Science in Information Studies at the University of Texas at Austin. While in Austin, Rachel served as a Tarlton Fellow at the UT Tarlton Law Library, where she received almost two years of on-the-job training as a part of the library's reference and public services staff. In addition to her legal and library experience, Rachel spent five years working on domestic violence and immigration issues with nonprofit organizations in Washington, D.C., and El Paso. During two of those years, Rachel served as a volunteer with two Lutheran-based organizations: the Lutheran Volunteer Corps and the Border Servant Corps.
Rachel grew up on the West Coast and in Hawaii, though she has called Texas home for the past 10 years. She speaks Spanish fluently, studied abroad in Mexico, and loves traveling in Latin America (with her most recent trip being to Peru).
