Although I'm not currently a practicing media specialist, I continue to maintain my license because it has been my dream job. Once my children are older, I intend on going back to the schools. I'm assisting my husband in his practice at this time and my technology and organization skills are certainly coming in handy.  My daughter and I began a mother-daughter book club (junior high level) that keeps me active in young adult literature.

Seed Savers Exchange / Robert Becker Memorial Library
Decorah, Iowa

I am cataloging and managing a library that began as the private collection of Seed Savers Exchange founders Kent and Diane Ott Whealy. Over the past 35 years the collection has grown to about 4,000 volumes, with the recent additions of about 1,000 volumes of rare books dating back to 1586. The library serves both as a research center for staff in the preservation and commercial branches of SSE and as a place for scholarly exploration of historic agricultural methods, foodways, and  vegetable-fruit-herb-flower varieties. The library also houses the institutional archive, including all Seed Savers Exchange publications and eventually all provenance records related to the heirloom seed collection held by the organization. For more info, visit the SSE website: http://www.seedsavers.org (The library link is not on the site yet; to get to the library page on Library World, go to http://opac.libraryworld.com/opac/signin?libraryname=seed savers.

SUNY Distinguished Librarian
Plattsburgh State University of New York
Plattsburgh, New York

I retired from PSUC in 2005, although my last year of teaching was 2010. I have been doing workshops: "Teaching as Performance," addresses the performance aspects of classroom teaching; and "Presentation Skills," which helps librarians who need to make presentations to boards, departments, etc. Both have received very positive feedback; if interested, contact me at my home address.

I authored numerous editions of a textbook used at the college level both here and abroad. There were various titles, the most recent of which is Information Literacy and Technology, Fourth Edition (2008).

Hired at the Senior Assistant Librarian rank in 1981, I was promoted to Associate Librarian in 1987 and to Librarian in 1995. I received the SUNY Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Librarianship in 1995; the Eastern New York Chapter of ACRL's Librarian of the Year award in 1997; and in 2003 was promoted to SUNY Distinguished Librarian, the highest rank in the SUNY system.
