“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 recent graduate of the University of Maryland at College Park’s Master of Library Science program. I started library school on the belief that the world needs accurate, up to date, and freely accessible information, and I finished school with that belief intact. My professional interests include cataloging and metadata, open access, research support, and lifelong learning.
I have recently begun work as a cataloger for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Central Library, as a federal contractor with the LAC Group. While a student, I was a contributing writer for Hack Library School.
