Writing

As an editor and writer, it’s common among my weekly functions to perform subject-specific research to aid content writing for mass-market educational publishers. I’ve done extensive fact checking of bibliographic and scientific information for national publications, such as National Geographic, National Geographic Kids, and Time for Kids. These types of development projects require definitive research methods and precise writing skills.

These are some of the skills I bring to Libraryland. Libraries are about making connections and conveying information. Here in the Information Age, with ever-emerging technologies and so many different means of communication, it’s become exceedingly important for librarians to have the wherewithal to convey messages. Whether writing public relations pieces or grant requests, today’s information professional must be skilled at delivering clear messages and factual information.

While my blog offers my most current library-related thoughts, you can read some longer academic pieces right here.
