Hutchinson, the office manager for the CIC's Center for Library Initiatives, appears in the publication's question-and-answer style "On the Job" column.

When asked what she likes most about her work, Hutchinson said: "The people. I just love working with all of the different people from the member institutions from different parts of the Midwest. That’s been great. I think it’s really fun meeting and talking with such a variety of people on a daily basis."
