About meI'm a nerdy librarian. Well, actually, I'm a genealogy librarian and local historian by profession, but I also spend a lot of time working on metadata, cataloging, and holdings maintenance. I work a lot with microfilm; no matter how you feel about film, you have to admit, it keeps things interesting.

When I'm not being a librarian (who am I kidding, I'm never not being a librarian), I'm being nerdy about grammar, punctuation, personal finance, and linguistics.

I also read books.

About my libraryThis is my Books I've Read account, as opposed to my other account, braeburn, which is strictly for books I own. It's probably overkill, but it works for me.

I have a custom classification system which is explained in excruciating detail here. (Except I don't find it excruciating because I'm a cataloging and taxonomy nerd.)
