I am fascinated with the ways people seek information, and how information professionals seek to help. The information landscape has changed, and digital natives face new challenges in an ocean of data. How do we come alongside to help them navigate? I explore new models for academic librarianship, and the challenges of info literacy. I am also intrigued by the subtle transformations that new tech has introduced into congregational and personal religious practice.
