Hey everyone! Librarian Wardrobe has expanded from just Nicole curating the blog to three new contributors. Wanting to make this a better resource, we’re hoping to improve the metadata and organization of posts, as well as include more informational content, like interviews and tips. We’re still planning this out, but it’s on the way.
Thanks for submitting and reading!
P.S. Librarian Wardrobe is now on Twitter!
And now for introductions:
Nicole is the creator/curator of Librarian Wardrobe and is an Instructional Services Librarian at the University of Arizona. She is also a volunteer and admin for Radical Reference, and Tweets @pumpedlibrarian.
Being a bicycle commuter/joyrider, Nicole has a more casual/active preference to her style, and loves layers, un-ironic fanny packs, and sidebraids (which help make helmet hair less gnarly without looking like a character from Little House on the Prarie). She’s interested in seeing your style and loves approving new Librarian Wardrobe posts!
Lauren has recently begun a new position as an Outreach Librarian for Queens Library in the Rockaway area of Queens. She’s a passionate advocate for library services in NYC and elsewhere, working as the webmaster and managing editor for the website savenyclibraries.org. She has an Associates in Fine Art from FIT and likes to think she absorbed a little fashion sense by osmosis while she was there.
She also makes some killer dill pickles.
Allie is User Experience Librarian at Portland Community College, where she user researches, references, teaches, outreaches, and star bellied sneetches—although she very nearly ended up with the job title “resident nerd”. She tweets, blogs, and librarian wardrobes as shinylib.
Currently Allie is obsessed with tutus and has been contemplating what the response might be if she began wearing them to the refdesk. Shoes, handbags/lunchpails, and stripey socks in all colors and lengths dominate her wardrobe.
Shiny style, as explained by a friend: madcap pastiche that burns away the Pacific NW grey, helps you get through the day and blasts through the ennui armor of hipsters with an unexpected attack of the authentic.
Sam is the Community Librarian for Woodland, Washington, which is part of the Fort Vancouver Regional Library District in Southwest Washington. Sam is married, and has two great children. When he isn’t librarianing, husbanding, or fathering, he spends his spare minutes writing plays and knitting.
