1. Where do you currently work?
I am the manager of circulation services of a university library.
2. How many other jobs have you had and where?
The short list is: as the daytime circulation supervisor of a university library, as the receptionist and then resource librarian of an architectural firm, as the library research specialist at an ebooks start-up, as a student assistant and then full-time circulation assistant at a university’s medical library, as a sales associate in a women’s clothing store, a department store, and a sporting goods store.
3. What do you like best about your job?
I adore the people I work with, and I like helping patrons find what they’re looking for.
4. What do you like least about your job?
I dislike dealing with issues in an attempt to clear them up, only to have them thwarted by endless meetings and garbled communication with other departments, or just by a lack of resources.
5. What is your dream job?
Something that merged my poetic skill with library work, but that did not require me to teach classes in either discipline.
