As you may have guessed, I am the wee librarian. The name pretty much says it all, except the fact that I call Canada my home. Presently, I am far from my ocean in Nova Scotia, but my heart remains there.
When I’m not trying to be a super librarian, I go by the less flashy name of Krista Godfrey. I work at McMaster University, and yes, all views on this blog are my own and not my employer’s. I also teach a distance reference course for the Mohawk College Library Technician program. This year, I’m please to be the Ontario Library Information Technology Association (OLITA) president.
My particular interests in the library world are far and varied, but ultimately, I am interested in reaching our users in the way that best suits them . It’s all about the users and meeting their needs. My particular passion at the moment is trying to leverage instructional technologies in libraries. My interests themselves are wide and varied: social networking and all the web 2.0 goodness out there, bridging the gap between high school and university, figuring out info lit and 21st century fluencies, preservation and access to information, scholarly communication – the list goes on so but I won’t bore you any longer.
My blog will address all these issues and more, as well as a bit of off the wall stuff. I’m always interested in hearing from others, with the same or differing views, so please contact me with your own thoughts. Want to know more? Check out this page.
