Beyond Bookshelves

Reflections of a 21st Century Librarian

About

I’m a librarian and manager at a suburban public library system on the east coast of the United States. I’ve worked in libraries in a variety of capacities for over a decade. My first jobs were in technical services and cataloging, and I branched out from there into a generalist role. I dabble in technologies of all kinds and I have an abiding interest in professional development, management, and leadership. I have experience working in the private, non-profit and government sectors, and I’m driven to combine the lessons from all three into 21st Century librarianship. All opinions on this site are my own and do not represent the positions or opinions of my employers, past or present.
