About me.:.CATALOGING RULES!!!.:.

I started my Masters in Information Sciences in Autumn 2010, so you might say I'm a Librarian-to-be.
I completed my Bachelor's degree in Compared Literature and Cinema, with a certificate in Japanese language and culture.
My main interests are Japanese literature, feminist literature and African post-colonial literature.
I have lived/travelled in Japan four times and am going back in May 2012.

Étudiante à l'Université de Montréal en sciences de l'information (bibliothéconomie). J'ai aussi étudié plus d'un an la langue japonaise (une partie de ce temps à Kanazawa, au Japon) et je m'intéresse à la littérature japonaise, surtout moderne. J'ai fait mon premier cycle universitaire en littérature comparée et cinéma.

About my libraryReally want to make me happy? Buy me any of the Naoki Ishikawa picture books. This man is a genius!

"Hope" is the thing with feathers --
That perches in the soul --
And sings the tune without the words --
And never stops - at all--
And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard --
And sore must be the storm --
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm --

I've heard it in the chillest land --
And on the strangest Sea --
Yet, never, in Extremity,
It asked a crumb - of Me.

by Emily Dickinson, 1861
