Areas of Interest, Expertise
My area of expertise involves using information tools such as scholarly databases, internet searches and other electronic resources to locate materials for patrons, with a focus on locating hard to find or obscure references.
I watched a movie where one of the characters said something along the lines of “your career should be something you would do for free.” I would be a librarian for free if I didn't need the paycheck to help keep a roof over our heads. I love solving puzzles and that's what I get to do on a daily basis. Searching for resources and answering questions gives me a chance to dig into the old files and read through some truly interesting (and weird) historical documents.
