Blog Audience:Academic librarians
Primary Focus:Technology & Innovation
Other Foci:Literacy; Library Instruction; Higher Education
The Waki Librarian blog explores intersections among technology, productivity, and (academic) libraries. It condenses information gleaned from many blogs and other sources and combines it with some commentary. I write about new technology and tools that can be applied in the library and about current library trends/issues. I work as the online literacy librarian and archivist at California State University, East Bay. My current active research interests are: usability testing, accessibility of online resources, information literacy instruction and assessment, evidence-based practice as applied to libraries, applications of technology for instruction and access, and community archives history. I received my MS in library science from Simmons College as well as my MA in history (I specialized in discourse and agriculture/farming of Japanese Americans during World War II).
