IMG_1382 (1) Hi, my name is Carleen and I’m an assistant librarian at SUNY Jefferson Community College in Watertown, New York.   My primary responsibility is to coordinate our information literacy program. I spend most of my time scheduling library instruction classes,  and trying to find new and creative ways to teach students information literacy and college level research skills. I am passionate about my role as an information maven and I believe strongly in the role of libraries as the center for self-learning and enlightenment.  When I’m not at work I’m usually spending time with my family which includes a spirited nine-year old son, an equally spirited 6 month old boxador and two very snarky cats.

This site is essentially a gateway to my social presence online.  From here you will find information about my professional background, including my CV and a Statement of Professional Philosophy (which is still developing). I currently maintain two blogs, one for reflecting about libraries and learning and the other for journaling about my personal thoughts and adventures.
