Evocative of a gritty time when New York City was not just one big Starbucks, Patti Smith’s “Just Kids” is a finalist for a National Book Award. This was one of my favorites from this year not only because I have been accused of being an aging hipster. For the record, I am too young to have participated in late 1970’s early 80’s CBGB crowd antics. I do, however, love a book that not only recounts experiences of a personal nature, but captures a moment in time, good or bad.

Findability is “the degree to which a particular object is easy to discover or locate” (Peter Morville, 2005, Ambient Findability) My first after school job was in the public library. I developed an appreciation of the Dewey Decimal system and never looked back, except for that whirlwind decade in advertising… Luckily, a digital asset management project at DDB reignited my interest in library and information sciences. I quickly obtained an MLIS and a position as a Digital Asset Manager administering a system for a high profile client following several awesome metadata projects and an internship at a worldwide media giant. My information related interests include taxonomy, metadata, cataloging, digitization, search, social media, digital asset management, emerging technologies and visual resources. Call me the Space Age Librarian, Visual Resource Manager, Content Specialist, Cataloging and Metadata Librarian or Digital Asset Management Expert.
