Summary of Qualifications

I am a librarian, an author, and a public speaker. A specialist in development and access issues, I was the first Internet Reference Librarian at the Providence Athenaeum, past Chair of the Resource Center at the Peace Corps headquarters in Jamaica, as well as a facilitator of the Jamaica Coalition on Disability. In these capacities, I conducted Internet and HTML training and survey research for the Athenaeum’s library staff, US Peace Corps Volunteers, and agency directors in Jamaica, respectively. As a researcher and former mediator, I have produced thirtyfive publications and presentations in the US, Britain, and Jamaica.

I have experience in Web design and Web . tools, SQL, PHP, and Adobe Dreamweaver, as well as the use of spreadsheets, including Excel, as well as experience with DACScompliant finding aids, and significant experience in AACR, AAT, LCSH, and LC classification.

My first book, How to Write Persuasively Today, was published by Greenwood/ABCCLIO Publishers in February . I am conducting research for my second. Its topic is physical and psychological access in library communities.
