My Pratt Manhattan Library tribute to Nina Katchadourian's Sorted Books

Libraries! They're neat.

As of January 2018, I've begun a library and information science masters program at Pratt Institute. Following are just a few of things I've been working on there:

  • Outreach for Prison Libraries Support Network (PLSN)
    • Info workers responding to the information needs of incarcerated people
  • Graduate Assistant for Semantic Lab 
    • An incubator for development of semantic technologies, and a leader in linked open data for cultural heritage
  • Co-creator of Verify This! 
    • A toolbox for verifying articles, stories, social media posts and images found on the web
So in our small way what we attempt to do is to look and see and receive and become a sponge and attempt to make anything that exists as part of the palette to describe whatever it is we think we want to do. And what you want to do is to be as beautiful and loving and as all-consuming as possible, so that the statement has many, many different implications, and it has many different levels. The only way to do that, seems to me, is to research.
