The purpose of this blog is to examine issues related to the work the library technicians or assistants might perform in the course of the work. I will conduct a literature review. I will sift through different sources. Finally, I will analyze the information and come up with recommendations.
My name is Stephen Karr, and I am an experienced library technician living in Vancouver, BC. I have a Diploma in Library and Information Technology from Langara College, as well as a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of Victoria.
Welcome to my world. Or, my latest incarnation of it. I came up with the idea for this blog because of a number of factors. 1) I love research. 2) I’m a trained library technician. 3) I am currently between jobs, and therefore have some extra time with which to fulfill 1) and 2). I care deeply about my field. I want to endeavor to understand it and become expert in it as much as I can. If this blog helps others, that is a bonus for me. My posts will also appear at Library Technicians & Assistants Section’s blog, LibTech Soup.
