About meFinally updating this, I'm bad at that (5/2011).
Hello, I am a UVA graduate (wahoowa!) and a current University of South Carolina graduate student pursuing my Masters in Library and Information Sciences through distance education.
I worked 3 years in the largest of the libraries at UVA as a shelver and a circulation clerk. I moved back home after graduating since I haven't been able to find a FT job. After a year and a half as a Library Assistant, I have been promoted/new job as a Webmaster with my current system (though still PT). In all though, I have about 3-4 jobs now, so not a lot of free-time to read as much as I like!

About my libraryI would say my library is fairly diverse, particular favorites include: vampire novels, fantasy/sci fi in general, world cultures and history. I have a good 80-90 books that need to be read as I love to buy books and forget that it does take time to read all of them!
