I am a PhD student in the School of Information Studies at McGill University, researching small public libraries under the direction of Professor Jamshid Beheshti. I am also a librarian at the St. Johnsbury Athenaeum. Scroll down to see some of what I've been up to, follow me on Twitter, read my blog, or send me an email.
In February 2013, I spoke at the 6th Annual Web2.U Symposium in Montreal on the habits of the top 269 librarians on Twitter, as listed by Twitter's own search function. My talk showed that many librarians tweet throughout the work day and that while most of the librarians I looked at were followed by more people than they followed, tweeting more does not necessarily lead to more followers.
In September 2012, I presented a poster at the #Influence12: Symposium & Workshop in Halifax on Measuring Influence on Social Media. My poster, co-created with Dr. Carolyn Hank, was titled "Dispatches from Blog Purgatory: Final Messages from Scholars' Inactive Blogs." You can view it here.
