Thank you for visiting. I created this space as an informal way to explore and discuss topics relevant to my interests in the information profession, including practices in academic librarianship, use of media resources and tools in the curriculum, new media and communications technologies, trends in collection development, digital archives and preservation, and related issues. I look forward to hearing from readers about their discoveries, successes, research, and other interests, and encourage anyone to post comments or contact me directly.
I am a graduate of the University of North Texas MLIS online program. Since 2009 I have held the position of Media Services Librarian at Jones Media Center, Dartmouth College Library. Prior to changing careers I worked in Washington, D.C. as an audio technician for a non-profit audio books publisher and as a freelance audio engineer. Upon moving to Vermont in 2005, I soon realized that full-time audio engineering work would be difficult if not impossible to come by, and decided to combine previous experience working in an academic environment with my technology skills. I was very fortunate to find a staff position that drew upon my interests and eventually provided a stepping stone into a professional appointment. I greatly enjoy working with students, faculty, and colleagues at Dartmouth College and other institutions.
