I am a librarian who does not work in a "typical" library enivironment. As a odd bird, some may questions if "librarian" truly describes me. However, I still identify with the term librarian! 

I use the lessons learned in the library world to improve user experience in the digital world of content and knowledge management. Knowledge management is one of those horrible terms that many in the field hate — yet have not developed a better term! I don't manage knowledge per se — nor do I simply manage content. Rather, as my administrator says, we manage communication of knowledge. I saw a term on another blog that I liked — knowledge support (when I refind where that was I will cite the entry. If you are the one whose term I've filched please let me know!)

    My first act in all work is to seek out the librarian and the library space and figure out how to make both pivotal to the work. We discovered in our very first km project (1997 good lordie me) that the calm structured expertise, objectivity, reach and networks, and the Swiss-style neutrality of the space and service are always invaluable in getting to the parts of an organisation you need to engage with in any km work.
