About me

Hello, my name’s Alissa and I’m a new library professional, residing at the intersection of metadata and technology. I spend most of my time cataloguing, mostly for money but sometimes for fun.

My professional interests include critical and radical cataloguing, post-MARC bibliographic formats, library user experience, Indigenous epistemologies in the GLAM sector and the place of libraries in the Anthropocene. I was recently interviewed for the Turbitt & Duck library podcast, which is a nice introduction to me and my work.

Life is too short to spend it in a comments section, so let me know your thoughts on Twitter instead! You can also reach me by email at hello AT lissertations DOT net.
