Hi, my name is Amanda Etches-Johnson and this is my blog. I write (intermittently) about emerging tech, social media, web development, user experience, and what it all means for libraries. That’s me up there. Sometimes my hair is pink, sometimes it’s just brown.
I am the Head, Discovery & Access at the University of Guelph Library, where I get to spend my time thinking about and guiding teams and projects that are all about making the library user experience better. It’s a brand new gig and, so far, pretty awesome. I hope to get into the meaty details right here on this blog (soon!). That said, I should mention that all opinions expressed here are mine and not my employer’s.
Finally, here’s a formal-ish bio I use for publications & such.
Also, if you have any interest at all in what libraries are doing with blogs (and related technologies, like RSS), you might want to visit the Blogging Libraries Wiki. And, if your library has a blog that isn’t on the wiki, go ahead and add it!
Thanks for visiting.
