“There is not such a cradle of democracy on earth as the Free Public Library, this republic of letters, where neither rank, office, nor wealth receives the slightest consideration.”
Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919)
I am a current student in the University of Maryland at College Park’s Master of Library Science program, expected to graduate in August 2015. I started library school on the belief that the world needs accurate, up to date, and freely accessible information, and I’m finishing school with that belief intact.
My professional interests include lifelong learning, open access, research support, and cataloging and metadata. On completion of my degree I hope to apply those interests in a public, academic, or federal library, while building skills in reader advisory and library operations.
