10 Yrs as a Librarian 6 Yrs as a Department Head 7 Yrs as an IT Professional
Libraries contain the gleanings of civilization. The focus of my work as a librarian has been both to make those gleanings available and to help people understand and produce materials that will be worth gleaning.
I have managed libraries, written numerous award winning grants, authored a five year strategic plan for a system of 14 libraries, supervised 16 library aides for a school district, managed 10 budgets, upgraded 14 catalog servers, led reference and circulation departments for a college and integrated information literacy into curricula for K-College students.
In addition, I worked in IT for 6 years. During my free time I became a Certified NetWare Administrator and founded five book groups.
