Just another librarian blog

About Me

Hi! Please note that this blog has moved to a hosted domain:

Please check me out there. Thanks!

Circulation is comprised of the random thoughts, musings and documentation of library and info science adventures by current MLIS student Lindy Brown.

Want to contact Lindy? She can be reached via email at ljbrown06 [at] or ljb06 [at] She is also on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Flickr.


Lindy Brown is currently an academic counselor at her alma mater, Oregon State University.  We are the other OSU – not “The” Ohio State University or Oklahoma State University.  (One way to tell the difference is that Oregon State is a medium-sized research university in the Pacific Northwest and is one of only two universities in the United States designated a land-, sun-, sea- and space-grant institution).

Lindy spent her first stint at OSU as a college student where she earned her B.S. in Sociology. While her father innocently wondered aloud “what are you going to do with that degree?,” she realized the benefits her liberal arts education provided her in regards to nurturing creative and critical thinking and the desire to pursue life-long learning opportunities.

Since then, she earned her M.Ed. in Student Affairs in Higher Education across the country at the University of Florida and spent the next 6 years putting the student affairs theory she learned into practice every day in her job as an academic advisor.

Five years after earning her M.Ed., Lindy went back to school to earn her MLIS via Florida State University’s College of Information distance learning program. She loves what she is learning and sees connections between information sciences and student affairs. She additionally supplements her coursework by volunteering several hours a week at the Corvallis-Benton County Public Library.  Lindy plans to graduate with her MLIS in 2010 with specializations in Reference & Instruction and Leadership & Management.

Outside of work, Lindy enjoys music, reading, adding to her collection of LP records, and learning about web 2.0 innovations and other technologies. Fascinated by the educational opportunities that web 2.0 provides, she plans to use this blog as a platform for documenting her own educational experiences.

      Hi! The first person that comes to mind is Kenley Neufeld — he’s the Library Director at Santa Barbara City College and very active in ALA and many committees. He’s a guest lecturer at San Jose State University’s SLIS program and has taught a course there called Information Technology Tools and Applications. He is very saavy with technology, social media and all that good stuff!
