  • Invested in the ethical ramifications of librarianly protection of patrons’ intellectual freedom
  • Interested in using technology to further education
    • but I don’t think technology replaces an educational mission

  1. Hi Rudy-
    I’m trying to write a paper on what it means to be a librarian today and was wondering if we could speak. I’m a grad student at the New School (and also a librarian!)
    Your blog is awesome- I really enjoyed reading your posts!
    Let me know your thoughts.
