My name is Robert Hoile and I am currently living in Sacramento, CA. I got my BA in English, History, and Classics at UC Davis before doing an MA in English at the University of Virginia. I just moved to Sacramento last summer and I am now teaching English and writing a community college while working part time in a library at another community college, and as a teaching assistant in Classics at UC Davis. Despite being spread pretty thin this semester, I am excited to be taking this course because I took INFO 200 with Professor Stephens last year and it was by far my favorite course I have taken in the MLIS program. I am hoping to learn a lot more about emerging technologies and how libraries are incorporating technology as one of their core functions in academia.
