Designing and teaching ILS 450 Global Librarianship is a part of my lifestyle of traveling, visiting libraries in the global arena, and working with diverse and multicultural populations. It not only encompasses my career as a library and technology specialist but also my interests in photography, cultures, adventure, art and design, gourmet food, organic gardening, music and other curiosities. I love animals, nature, wilderness, mountains, rocks, forests, plants, textiles, pottery & antiques. Meteor showers are a passion, as is life.

My organization, traveling librarian, provides resources and consult in establishing libraries and literacy related endeavors in remote areas of India & the Himalayas. ILS 450 reflects the intricacies of understanding and working with patrons and resources in an exchange on a global level.
