Writing & Editing
I’ve been writing on the internet for — prepare yourself — 20+ years. I got started back in the days of hand-coded html when I was a young teenager, moving into the blogosphere when it arrived. I continue to write online and have expanded into other venues as well.
What’s it like to find work in a library that’s much different from your current workplace? What happens when you work hard to work in a school library, only to find your first job in special collections? Ray Pun and I edited a book of essays and conversations from folks who have been in this very position. Career Transitions for Librarians: Proven Strategies for Moving to Another Type of Library is now available from Rowman Littlefield. Purchase your copy on rowman.com or via Amazon.
I write blog posts from time to time over on my Medium page. I’ve also contributed content to Mozilla Foundation, ALA’s Office of Intellectual Freedom, and more.

I’ve been writing and editing newsletter for METRO since 2012. Our most recent incarnation is simply titled METRO’s Newsletter. It arrives in inboxes roughly once a month. Sign up here if you are so inclined.
It’s been awhile since I’ve published in academic publications, but I’m so proud that I had the opportunity to do so. And I’m proud of this work. Please ignore this not-quite-right citation style:
- An Imperfect Decade: The Culture Wars and the National Endowment for the Arts, Documents to the People, 2012
- Fine-tuning the Institutional Repository: Evaluating the Self-Archiving Behavior of Researchers in Music with Grace Dwyer, G. and Sean Leahy, The Serials Librarian, 2012
