"There is simply something more valuable, more honest, about original materials."
I hold a Master of Library and Information Science degree and am a professional librarian and archivist. I have experience in education, both teaching college courses and working in the library. My specializations are writing, science, and archives. I have worked at several universities, NASA, and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. I have also assisted in the scholarly editing of major works, including two books published by Cambridge University Press. Recently, I served as a Technical Book Reviewer for MediaWiki (O'Reilly, 2008). I am listed in Marquis' Who's Who in American Education, 2007-8, Who's Who of American Women, 2008-9, Who's Who in America, 2010, and Who's Who in the World, 2010.
