author with bowtie

Postmodernist. Idealist. Tweaker. Stoic. Technophile. Luddite. Reader. Librarian.

My name is John Jackson. There are many names like it but this one is mine.

I am an information professional with a background in literary studies and a wide range of interests: from higher education and critical pedagogy to knowledge communities and the future of information access. Currently, I work as an Outreach and Communications librarian (bibliothecarius communicendi) in Los Angeles. This is a space for my thoughts on libraries, information culture, technology, and the academy. Mostly. I also occasionally post about stuff I like, things I do, and places I go, not all of which are library-related. I contain multitudes, and these are just fragments.

Other places you will find me: Twitter.
