I write professionally on library technology.
Here I write on topics such as libraries, reading, hiking, MINIs, craft beer, cars, and current events.
Most of my professional writing output appears on my Library Technology Launchpad website. There I write about library technology news, ebooks, mobile apps and websites, online resources, social media, UX, and other related topics.
I co-wrote a chapter for a book titled Creating Research Infrastructures in the 21st-Century Academic Library: Conceiving, Funding, and Building New Facilities and Staff. The chapter is titled “The Library as Publishing House”. The book is available from Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.
I am currently working on a library technology book to be released as an open educational resource (OER). It should be finished in 2020.
One personal interest I have is cars, specifically Minis and MINIs. I founded the website Library of Motoring initially as a site to catalog MINI advertisements, brochures, books, and magazines for fellow collectors. Now it contains MINI updates such as facts and figures, events, interesting MINI stories, book reviews, and a bit of news.
The Daily Toggle is an online Mini and MINI magazine which I co-founded, edited, and wrote for from 2014 to 2016. We posted daily on news, buzz, and entertainment for the Mini and MINI enthusiast community.
