About meI'm an anthropologist and librarian supporting research and teaching about Africa at a large public university. I enjoy managing and building collections (yes, I get paid to buy books...eat your heart out), sharing what I know about libraries, anthropology, and Africa, learning more from the many people I encounter in my job, and helping users find what they need. Along the way I find time to learn and appreciate what's available in my own institution (including rare books and antique maps) and elsewhere. I work for library users, while at the same time unveiling some of the mysteries of libraries so they can navigate this complex institution on their own.
About my libraryI like my books and tend to rate the ones I document here rather highly. I especially like to list books that few others have read and to observe my own parsimony in choosing what to include here from my own shelves. A confession: sometimes I list books that I've read but don't own. In my defense, I buy these sometimes long after reading them (for the first time).
