About meI have been a member of the Department of Library Public Services faculty at Western Kentucky University (WKU) since 1997. I came a Fulbright student from China in 1988 to study at Indiana University at Bloomington, where I received my M.A. (American History) and M.L.S. I am Professor and Special Assistant to the Dean for
Web & Emerging Technologies of the WKU Libraries, leading the Libraries' Web & Emerging Technologies Working Group. I am a member of the Council of Library Department Heads and serves on the university's Technology Advisory Committee to the Vice President for IT.

Winner of the 1999 "Kentucky Libraries" Award, I am author of "Princess Peacock: Tales from the Other Peoples of China" (Libraries Unlimited,2008), "The Magic Lotus Lantern and Other Tales from the Han Chinese"(Libraries Unlimited, 2006), and "Virtual Libraries' Yesterday, Today and
Tomorrow" (Huayi, Beijing, 2002). I co-authored "Celebrate Chinese New Year, Holiday Around the World Series" (National Geographic, 2009) as a consultant and the five-volume "Berkshire Encyclopedia of China" (Berkshire, 2009) as one of its Associate Editors. I have also contributed to the "Encyclopedia of Contemporary Chinese Culture" (Routledge, 2004) and "Theories and Practices of American Libraries in the Twenty-First Century" (Beijing Library Press, 2007). In addition, I have authored and co-authored over two dozen articles published in professional journals including College & Research Libraries, Library Administration and Management,
Journal of Research in International Education, Internet Librarian, Against the Grain, Technical Services Quarterly, Journal of National Library of China, LIRT News, and
Kentucky Libraries. I have recently been listed on the Marquis Who's Who in America (2009).

I live in Bowling Green, Kentucky with my wife Shizhen Gao and son Hao Yuan.
