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.
