My name is Sarah and I am a second semester student. As a temporary transplant from Vancouver, I am quite enjoying London so far.
Prior to entering the program I completed a BA in Psychology from Simon Fraser University and a Diploma in Library and Information Technology at Langara college. For the past three years I have worked at the West Vancouver Memorial Library as a Library Assistant in the library’s Community Computing Centre. As part of my position (I am lucky to be heading back west in August), I work with our eReader lending & training programs, and train patrons on basic computer functions.
I use and think about social media as a technophile and (near) digital native. I am taking this course in order to learn about how to best use social media in libraries and what the best methods are for preparing for future developments.
On the personal side, I love knitting, my eReader, open source software, and trashy books and movies.
