First Post!

Hello Pittsburgh!

This will be my professional blog regarding Library and Information Science (LIS), issues pertaining to it, and much more!

I have interests in archives, special collections, library advocacy, serving under-served users, Pittsburgh history, paleography, book binding, book collecting, book history, world history, digital humanities, the Classics, and linguistics. I plan on using this blog to showcase how these issues relate to LIS.

Please feel free to comment on my posts and especially to share any articles you might find relating to the above subjects. At St. John’s College (see About Me), we talked about “the Great Conversation”. I am excited to see where our great conversation will go!
