About me

Hello, my name’s Alissa and I’m a librarian, residing at the intersection of metadata and technology. I spend most of my time cataloguing, usually for money but sometimes for fun. My professional interests include critical and radical cataloguing, post-MARC bibliographic formats, library user experience, Indigenous theories of knowledge in the GLAM sector and the place of libraries in the Anthropocene.

If you need to reach me Twitter is probably your best option, but you can also email me at hello AT lissertations DOT net.
