Why this page?
Who am I?
It's been particularly interesting to go through library school in an area with (at the time) 9 separate public library systems (with different policies and areas of particular focus or demand), as well as the various academic libraries and consortia.
I talk about various library-related topics on my blog.
You can find out more about my education and training elsewhere on this site.
Why the username?
While professionally I do link my legal name and my site, I wanted a pseudonym here, too - I think they give an insight into people's characters and interests in a way our given names don't always do.
A friend suggested the 'modernhypatia' username to me, and I loved it! Hypatia has long been a favorite historical figure of mine. While Wikipedia is always a source to view with some critical attention, their page on her is one of the more thorough summaries of her life I've found in one place.
