Hi, my name is John Kennerly, and I am a librarian. Welcome to another pilgrim’s bucket of reflections on life as he sees it during his sojourn.
About this blog…
Here you will find my personal observations and discoveries related to librarianship, information, technology, and life. There is a good chance it will also be peppered with postings related to other personal interests outside of my professional calling.
I would love to interact with you. Feel free to leave comments (family-friendly, please) or otherwise connect with me (see below). Two-way streets are much better.
More about me…
I am a librarian. I work with people and information. I have been in the profession since 1995, and I currently serve as the library director at Erskine College and Theological Seminary. I am fascinated with the use of information technology–particularly as it relates to connections between people and information (discovery) or people and people (social networking).
I am an educator. As a faculty member at an institution of higher education and as a member of the human race, I value the pursuit of knowledge. And I am passionate about any little role that I can play in helping others get there.
Outside of my profession, I am a husband (to the best), a father (to twin girls) and a musician/singer/songwriter (another of my great passions). I have lived in the Carolinas all my life (yep, a Carolina boy). I currently live and work in upstate SC. I love the outdoors, time spent with family and friends, strong coffee (and sweet tea), a good read, a guitar that is in tune, the miracle of grace, a good campfire, and late nights (I also kind of like being up early–not a good combination). And did I mention my ongoing mission to amass (and wear) a collection of free t-shirts?
