Kell Carpenter


I've been in libraries for almost 20 years, mostly public. I now find myself in an academic library with "faculty" beside my name; it's all kind of bizarre...

I love technology, and am excited by all the prospects that are coming our way in the form of open source options. I have some hands-on experience with using free and open source software (FOSS) in the library setting, and would love to see it become the standard instead of the exception in libraries and academia.

Aside from technology, I love reading, movies, music, and spending time with my family. I had a blast at my first THATCamp; can't wait to get back into the fun this year!
