This is the beginning….

In an effort to create more of a online presence for myself, I have started this blog. I’ve never thought much about “branding” myself, but it is seems necessary to make yourself as marketable as possible. At the moment I am doing quite a bit of reading for my research collaboration with Dr. Marcia Mardis. Cyberbullying is a research area which needs more attention from the library and information studies world. One interesting aspect of cyberbullying and traditional bullying is the lack of agreed upon definition for both. It seems a bit like the unsolvable definition of ‘information’ within the LIS profession. It is my intention that my research in this area will be of use to school media specialist and public librarians serving young adults, particularly those who are victims of cyberbullying. I am aiming for producing research that is relevant to both the academic and professional librarian worlds.
