2018 in review

 This is my fourth year in review post. 2015 | 2016 | 2017 I had a baby this year! It was a big thing in my world, bringing lots of new physical realities and choices. I am choosing to be candid about my experience in this reflection, not only for my own sake but also… Continue reading 2018 in review

2017 in review

I almost didn’t publish this post. I let it sit in my drafts and lurk guiltily in my conscience. With every passing day it seemed way too late to post it. Ultimately, my interest in continuing a tradition from 2015 and 2016 won out, so here are a few rambling thoughts about 2017. WINTER January is… Continue reading 2017 in review

2016 in review

In 2015 I wrote about my year. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to continue that practice for 2016 too. January January lives up to its reputation: cold and dark. R and I start the year newly engaged in Nashville. Later I’ll learn that people think I’m knocked up, at least until a… Continue reading 2016 in review

embracing library-supported research data management services

The following is excerpted from an invited talk I gave at the Oklahoma State University Library in early April. I’ve embedded the slides below but you can also scroll through for my notes – not the most thorough writeup I’ve ever written but enough to give you a glimpse at my discussion points! I’d love… Continue reading embracing library-supported research data management services

my ACRL digital curation interest group webinar

I gave a webinar for ACRL’s Digital Curation Interest Group (DCIG) earlier this month! As hard as it always is to give recordings a fresh listen and hear all the times I say umm and so!, what can you do? I had fun and I’m so glad I could share some of my ideas on shaping RDM and digital… Continue reading my ACRL digital curation interest group webinar

my word for 2016: moxie

As I mentioned in my recent DCIG webinar, I’ve decided to pick a word to guide my year. It’s something that a lot of the crafty lifestyle bloggers I follow do, and while part of me feels a little silly, I learned last year the power of focusing in on a concept (visibility as applied… Continue reading my word for 2016: moxie

uw open meetup

One of my new endeavors in 2015 was the UW Open Meetup, the brainchild of myself and colleagues Carrie Nelson and Jim Jonas. With half a year under our belt, I thought I’d provide a quick update on how things are going. The story of our origin is that we’re a bit of a rogue group. We… Continue reading uw open meetup

2015! my favorite year yet.

2015 was markedly different (and remarkably better) than 2014. I’m not particularly good at appreciating the recent past or savoring things just as they are. I’m often eyeing up the next step, scheming about how to get there. So today I thought I’d reflect on this wild and wonderful year that was filled with personal and… Continue reading 2015! my favorite year yet.
