Introduction

My name is David (he/him) and I am a library student with a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. I currently work for the San Francisco public library as a page. One of the reasons that I chose this course was that I remembered from other course materials Dr. Stephens’ enthusiasm for the topics of libraries, technology, and online networking. I know that this course will be interesting and engaged with topics that are important for the future of libraries.  I’m primarily interested in pursuing public librarianship because I believe in what public libraries offer (education for everyone) and I also enjoy the challenge of finding answers to questions. I don’t consider myself a true polymath, but it is a nice goal.

The book I’m currently reading is Because Internet by Gretchen McCulloch. It’s great!
