About meNOTE!!! THE LIBRARY CATALOGUED HERE HAS BEEN MOVED OVER TO ITS NEW HOME AT THE nautilus_library
This catalogue, the smellthecoffee library, will still be used for complimentary purposes still to be determined ...
I am a professional librarian in a public library system, and have both cataloguing and reference experience. I am also a professional DJ. I am partnering with a DJ colleague in a production company.
I am temporarily inactive as a performing DJ at the moment, but am involved in production and related activities with colleagues in Brooklyn, New Orleans, and Atlanta.
LATE BULLETIN! Having not found an LT group related to New Orleans I've just started one called "Crescent City Connection". The link is http://www.librarything.com/groups/crescentcityconnecti
About my libraryNOTE!!! THE LIBRARY CATALOGUED HERE HAS BEEN COPIED OVER TO ITS NEW HOME AT THE nautilus_library
This catalogue (SmellTheCoffee) will be converted to other complementary purposes in (one hopes) the next few weeks, perhaps a wishlist or a "to get" or a recommended list...
(The profile below applies to the nautilus_library.
My library reflects most of my books and DVDs. I plan to add CDs and my collection of vinyl (i.e. "phonograph records", remember those?) mostly accumulated as a DJ. Some other formats are included, including, maps, document files (such as magazine and journal articles), and miscelaneous items.
Books are mostly in English but there are a growing number in Spanish and French as i read those languages.
The motley group of my interests that are reflected in my library, include (but are not limited to):
social and historical dynamics (ethnicity, class, wealth level, erotic orientation, etc.) from all perspectives, but with a special emphasis on Africentric analysis
New Orleans -- especially the PEOPLE of New Orleans whether back or still scattered against their will.
speculative fiction (esp. CJ Cherryh and Octavia Butler),
peoples' sociocultural dynamics as relates to their religious and spiritual manifestions -- 3 points of particular BUT NOT EXCLUSIVE interest include progressive Islam, the Rastafari movement, and Christian liberation theology,
Worship, liturgical, and artistic expressions, especially from a sociocultural perspective, and with a particular emphasis on daily patterns such as the daily office in Christianity and salat in Islam,
animal psychology and behaviour and animal rights,
languages, including particularly (but not exclusively) African, Creole, Celtic, and languages, mostly from a study overview perspective,
any computer books that will help my improve my novice web page design skills and database skills,
material about (and geared to) adults with Asperger Syndrome (of which i am one),
any random eccentric or oddball (and occasionally twisted) thing that catches my interest.
As vinyl and CDs are added the musical genres will be varied but strong in hip-hop, reggae (roots, lovers rock, dancehall), house and other dance genres, latin (esp. salsa, merengue, bachata, reggaeton, latin house, latin pop), as well as jazz, Black gospel music (esp. the 70s and 80s), Western art music ("classical" music), and quite a bit of other miscellany.
