Hi.  My name is Dani and I’m a diva with the research skills of a librarian, the preservation skills of an archivist, the organizational skills of a mother and the domestic skills of a Stepford wife…

In a previous life, I was an Archivist and Reference Librarian at Misericordia University.  I am now a displaced librarian trying to navigate life outside the stacks.

This blog is primarily for library related material, but every now and then I like to throw in random observations about life, politics, popular culture – whatever strikes my fancy.

    I too am excited to welcome you. That’s wondrous: though I know nothing about the archival work, but always heartily welcome and honor the archivist. That may look strange, but the archivists understand the best my motto “the depth of steps we leave in life is defined by our love to other”

    I found your site on technorati and read a few of your other posts. Keep up the good work. I just added your RSS feed to my Google News Reader. Looking forward to reading more from you down the road!

    @AlexM Your post got stuck in my spam queue. I apologize. Now I know to check that thing! 🙂 Anyway, thank you for the kind words, I sincerely appreciate the support.

    I’m a newcomer to archiving/library work – currently volunteering in both capacities in order to get experience in order to do a deree in library studies in 2010. I discovered your site whilst wandering the web and found it very interesting – added you to my Bloglines aggregator. Trying now to get my blog up and running – another new thing for me 🙂 – Slainte/Shalom from Cal the Archivegeek

      Hi Archivegeek! Welcome to the wonderful world of the histolibrarianivist (where libraries and history collide). Good luck with your studies and setting up your blog.

        Hello,

        Great word, histolibrarianivist. Mind if I borrow it? I’m of the mind that an archivist performs best when she/he has a library *background/degree* with an affection for history.

        Best,
        Michelle

        Michelle,

        Please, use “histolibrarianivist” in good health. LOL I agree ~ I think having a degree in library science and history helped me out a lot when I was working as an archivist. Now that I’m teaching, I think working as a librarian and archivist helped. So, yeah, it’s all one big circle. Thank you for visiting.

        Have a fab weekend,
        Dani
