About Karen

About Karen
“All that mankind has done, thought, gained, or been; it is lying as in magic preservation in the pages of books.” ― Thomas Carlyle I am an information professional interested in the ways in which librarians can provide innovative user-centered research services. In my library work I am able to effectively communicate with patrons about their favorite books both fiction and nonfiction. With my research skills and my experience with different learning technologies I can guide students towards their individual educational goals.
