I am the Circulation Supervisor at the Foster Business Library at
the University of Washington in
Seattle. I supervise 2 full-time techs and 8 students and am basically
responsible for keeping our Circulation and Reserve running smoothly. My
interests include libraries, punk rock, collecting full-sized pinball &
arcade games, and self-publishing. It’s very fortunate that there are a
number of punks and self-publishers within the library community. I publish
my own music fanzine (which is cataloged
and collected at the UW in our special collections) and
help publish a bi-weekly alternative paper called Tablet .
Tablet was recently awarded the Reader's Choice award for Best New Title in the 2001
Alternative Press Awards!
The Modified Librarian à Librarians and library staff with tattoos, piercings, cuts and burns. I’ve got bod mods and so do a number of the younger generation of library staff.
Librarypunx à Yes, there are at least a few of us, and it’s all about networking baby!
Anarchist’s Librarian Web à Anarchist librarians, no way!?! Yes way, great lefty and free speech news sight about libraries.
