3. Describe ACRL in three words: Innovative, Learning, Proactive.

4. Why did you join ACRL? To keep up with the ways academic librarianship is constantly changing!

5. What do you value about academic or research librarianship? I appreciate the variety it offers me in my job: interaction, focus, experimentation.

6. In your own words: I live in an outpost, rural town and work at the local community college. I consider myself a “frontier librarian” in more ways than the obvious geographical sense. There’s the information frontier and the technology frontier to wrangle. I’m a new ACRL member and I hope to build a community of support so I don’t feel all alone “out here.”
