I’m the Web Services Librarian at the Sonoma State University Library in Sonoma County, California. I’ve been at Sonoma State since August 2013 and have had the pleasure here of working with a wonderful team of smart, creative, and dedicated people. We are a strongly student-focused Library, and my personal mission is to use our website and web services to inspire students’ curiosity and to teach them the skills they need to satisfy that curiosity and to become confident self-directed learners.

When I’m not librarianing, I am usually engaging in making something or other. I love to cook, sew, knit, embroider, make jewelry, and generally craft things. You can read about my non-library adventures at laurapants.com. I read a lot (you can check out my not-up-to-date library at LibraryThing), and I try to squeeze in dance, running, and yoga.
I live in Rohnert Park, CA with my partner, and have lived in Oakland, Santa Cruz, Boston, and Walla Walla, Washington. I’m happy to be back in California again, and hope I never have to leave.
