Welcome to the 2nd iteration of MiscEtcetera! The first version of this blog was started as a library school assignment. Shout-out to San José State University SLIS class of 2008 — Go Spartans! This time around, this blog’s all about labor of love.
I’m Melissa Cardenas-Dow (author: melissaicd). Right now, I’m the Outreach/Behavioral Sciences Librarian at University of Redlands in Redlands, California. I’ve been with University of Redlands for 4 years now and my academic librarian position here is the first one I’ve held since graduating from SJSU-SLIS in 2008. I still have lots to learn!
MiscEtcetera v2 is my little corner in cyberspace. Sometimes a junk drawer, sometimes a soapbox, MiscEtcetera is the place where I write about books, libraries, information, tech trends, pop culture, and other stuff that strike my fancy. The personal and the professional intermingle on this blog. You’ve been forewarned.
Lots have changed for me within the last year. I hope to make disclosures soon.
