I became a librarian because I can think of no other career in which you get such a wide exposure to all aspects of recorded knowledge. After earning an undergraduate degree at Trinity University, a master’s degree in history from the University of Virginia, and a library degree from Indiana University, I worked in a circuitous route through libraries at several large research universities, but have always been happiest in a liberal arts setting. I am now happily ensconced at Rollins as the Head of Public Services and the Business librarian. I came by my business experience the old fashioned way, through co-owning and being the chief research assistant for a number of small companies over the years. I teach an RCC called Cowboys, Aliens, and Vampires: A Study of Popular Fiction. Outside of librarianship, I write historical novels under the pseudonym Elizabeth Camden.
