I am originally from Illinois but have made Texas my home for over 25 years now. I have worked at the Texas Tech University Libraries for more than 25 years in various capacities. For the last several years I have been a member of the Technology department where I have been doing research on intellectual capital and knowledge management. I am the quality assurance person for the knowledge base. My job is to make sure the database contains useful and relevant information that is being reused by department members. I was also named as the part-time Assessment Librarian for the library.
