I am a graduate, of the Faculty of Information at the iSchool at the University of Toronto, with a Master of Information. A Facebook survey once pegged me as a Web 2.0 librarian, and while the merits of Facebook surveys are clearly dubious I believe it describes me quite well.
My initial experience in the profession of librarianship was in the field of law where I was a law librarian at two major firms within Canada. Now I work at a public library. My first position at the public library provided me with the opportunity to help customers connect with the right information during their job search. I am now working on the administrative side of things in the CEO’s Office where I get to work on lots of really cool projects for the library. And most importantly I am learning how the library really works from up above.
I believe the public library is an essential tool in providing individuals with the information they need to make informed opinions.
I am originally from Vancouver and miss BC terribly. And yes it really is that beautiful there, it’s just a fact.
