The Women Who Drive Library Technology
Miller, Eva
Library Journal, v132 n8 p28-32 May 2007
No matter their generation or library setting, the women who find technology and libraries a compelling combination share certain qualities. The women interviewed here are confident, skilled communicators and risktakers, people who seek challenges and prefer working in teams. They revel in new gadgetry, but they never forget it is all about a positive user experience. As a group, they represent a hybrid librarian--someone who is equally fascinated by emerging technologies and how to use them to improve library services. This article profiles women who are involved in the technology side of librarianship. It explores how they got there, what they contribute, and the challenges of being a woman in a tech field.
