Welcome Aboard

In the spirit of this first posting, I would like to share a thought-provoking quote by the late President John F. Kennedy…”We should not let our fears hold us back from pursuing our hopes.”  I chose this quote because it has become my new mantra. As a current distant education LIS graduate student, there are a lot of issues one has to manage in order to complete the degree. Each semester, I make time to evaluate my skills and knowledge gained from my courses. I find that this is very important method to use in order to stay relevant to the library and information profession.

It is my hope that this blog serves as a sounding board to address the concerns [fears] that me and my peers have in the area of library and information sciences. Variegated Stacks will evaluate current literature in the area of Web 2.0 technologies, diversity initiatives, and career trends for recent graduates. My lifelong passionate for learning, technology, and research makes librarianship a logical career choice.

The idea behind the name Variegated Stacks serves as a metaphor…the idea that within every library collection, the content of each book is sprinkled with differences.

Enjoy…

    I agree, what a fantastic name, it makes me feel like mine was uninspired. Keep up the good work!
