About Me

My name is Nicci Westbrook and I am a librarian who works mostly on digital library projects, library leadership and management, and diversity initiatives.  I have recently relocated to San Jose, California and remain active with LITA and APALA.  

I earned a second master's degree in Library and Information Science from the University of North Texas where I also hold a Graduate Academic Certificate in Advanced Management of Information Agencies--say that ten times fast!  Additionally, I was selected as a 2010 ALA Spectrum Scholar and am a member of the Beta Phi Mu Honor Society.  I am honored to have received the Multiple Hats Award and the Librarian Achievement Award from the University of Houston Libraries.  My research interests include online management techniques, digital library best practices and diversity in libraries.
