Inspiration For Becoming A Law Librarian
To land a job somewhere near eastern Nebraska or western Iowa. At the time I would’ve accepted any library or library-related position that was available.
All my colleagues—seriously, from my old buds, to watching and talking with new law librarians. My earliest mentor was Rene Chapman I suppose.
Current Position Challenges
Keeping up with all the changes in technology. Right now that means trying to get the electronic resources and easy access “dragon” to stop blowing flames of anarchy in our OPAC. How do you slay this beast? Our catalogs are a mess.

'Crazy' Non-Professional Activity
Being crazy inside my professional circle.
Earliest Childhood Memory
Shaking the sides of my crib, hollering “I got to make a wet.”
Where In Five Years?
Most likely in the bathroom mirror.
