It's Friday, and my four readers know what that means. This week, I theorize why slaves in antiquity may actually be better off than college adjunct teachers today, and I imagine Anthony Sullivan peddling sex toys. Plus things are bad for rural hospitals and Starbucks coffee drinkers. What do all those have in common? They are "Signs the Economy is Bad." Click and check it out. And if you like what you read, consider subscribing to the blog so you don't miss it later.

Story
Introduction
I have been an academic librarian since 2004, and I started blogging in 2005. Prior to this, I have been a high school teacher and a college adjunct instructor. One of my passions is to teach others how to know when they need information, how to find it, and how to make use of it in an ethical way. I have access to a diverse range of information sources, and I know how to use them. Plus, I arm people with facts and information. I am firm believer in teaching these very important skills.

I call my professional blog The Gypsy Librarian (where, among other things, I read a lot of library literature so you don't have to, then write about it) because a gypsy is a wanderer, and I am a wanderer at heart. As Tolkien wrote, "not all who wander are lost." I also keep a personal blog at The Itinerant Librarian. Feel free to check my blogs out. Comments are always welcome.

Married to The Better Half, we have a daughter who reminds me innocence and wonder are great things. We also have two cats who keep life interesting.
