Wondering Who This Is?

My name is Alison Steinberg, I am the Online Services Librarian at San Diego Mesa College (no view expressed on this blog is necessarily shared by my employer). I am also an education technology doctorate student at Pepperdine University through their hybrid program. I was a teacher librarian in K-12 ed for over 10 years before I moved to academic librarianship in January of 2007. I was very involved in the California School Library Association and spoke at many conferences. Since my move I have been checking out my new world, I am surprised at how different academic librarianship can be from the K-12 education system. I love my job, I feel very fortunate. I believe I am ready to become more involved with my new worldwide colleagues (maybe even a few committees once my dissertation gets off the ground) and this blog is the big kick-off.

    I don’t understand a lot of the technical jargon, because this isn’t my area of specialty, but it is nice to look in on your blog once in awhile. Keep it up!

    Hi Alison, I just wondered if you’d like to participate in the Library Routes Project? (I promise this isn’t random spam – I’ve not left messages on anyone else’s blog about this…) It’s a project documenting how and why people get into this profession, and I’d be interested in what you had to say. If so, the Wiki can be found at http://libraryroutesproject.wikkii.com.

  3. I’m sorta disappointed you’ve given up on your blog & your brand. Or did you just move it? Years ago, I quietly and jealously coveted your name – the “Animated Librarian” I went with the Daring Librarian & it has served me well – but I just wanted to say you were an inspiration. Hope you are doing well in Academia! Cheers!

      Hi daringlibrarian, I haven’t given up the brand I use it in many ways. I have dropped off of the librarian blog because I didn’t feel I had much to add at the time but wanted to leave my options open. I so have a quilting blog called animatedlibrarianquilts. com. I have also had some health issues that have taken president.
