General Information

Personal Statement

Personal Statement

I have woven together three career strands in librarianship, systems management, and information science research.

I worked as a professional law librarian in California and New York and as a paralegal for complex case litigation in State and Federal courts. I have been a senior academic library manager.

I served in healthcare as an information services manager and then as a library information systems director in academia.

Most recently I am a peer-review editor, author, and doctoral advisor on the history and foundations of information science and newer philosophies of information and librarianship.

My latest research examines intuition, including its collective form, and our emerging understanding from cognitive sciences on abilities to share memory and logic, together as a kind of cultural system, a form of community, and potential theoretical basis for citizen science and its correlates.
