I’ve been a librarian for thirteen years, first at the University of Wyoming as a reference and fine arts librarian, and for the past eight years at Regis as Distance Services Librarian. In addition to a master’s in library and information science, I have a master’s degree in art history. I keep active in art history research, and I work with the Regis collection of New Mexican santos. A significant part of my job at Regis is library instruction, at the reference desk, in the classroom and increasingly, online.

In my spare time, I like to read and bake, and I am a Colorado Master Gardener. My particular gardening interest, born of living many years in an arid climate, is xeriscape.

I recently completed my Masters Degree in Library Science at Indiana University in Bloomington, IN. I also have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Religion from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH. Like Tom, my job includes on-site and virtual library instruction, reference work, and collection development responsibilities for the Catholic Studies, Jesuitica, and Religious Studies collections. I’m a native of Denver, CO and enjoy sailing, camping, hiking, cycling, snowshoeing and other outdoor activities. I am also a collector of vinyl records and I DJ the occasional house party. I am very excited about the use of social software in library and education settings. Each day, I find myself becoming more of a tech geek!

    Dear Paul:
    Congratulations for your pretty interesting article (10.1080/19411260902858631). It clearly provides the big-picture behind tracking using Google Analytics and all those practices can be consider a sound guideline for electronic management of learning-oriented objects produced in-house. I’m firmly interested on drafting a proposal for building capacity on electronic management of information for agricultural development. Thanks so much again for your efforts and please keep publishing all of them.

    Best wishes,

    I believe everything posted was very reasonable. However, think about this, suppose you were to write a awesome title?

    I am not saying your information isn’t solid., but what if you added a title that makes people desire more? I mean About | Regis University ED205 Research Blog is a little boring. You could look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they write post titles to get viewers interested.
    You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab readers
    excited about what you’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.

    First off I want to say great blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I’ve had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Many thanks!

    Many adult ADHD patients suffer from forgetfulness and since they administer the medications themselves,
    they often forget that they have already ingested their
    dose for the day thereby ingesting another set which can cause overdosing.
    Think of something unique as the adult gifts for the birthday presents for
    girls. Let’s start your exploration with a
    beautiful parable I use in the Toxic Relationships Self-help
