    I love my work.  Like so many other librarians, I realize that the complexity of the job, the autonomous nature of what we do, and the meaningfulness of our work makes for a pretty satisfying experience.  Currently, I’m the Digital Services Manager at St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas.  Over my relatively short library career, I’ve been an instruction librarian, a reference librarian, an instructional technology librarian, and now a systems librarian of sorts.

    I lean more to action and doing than I do to reflection and writing.  I rely more on instinct, dialog, and collaboration than I do research, reading and expert opinion.  While I’ve been able to pull my thoughts into the context of scholarly writing before, doing so on a regular basis will be a welcomed challenge.

    Other facts about Eric:

    • I love teaching.
    • I love rooting for others.
    • I used to do slam poetry and play in an air hockey league.
    • I am comfortable with ambiguity.
    • I am interested in leadership and aspire to be a library director someday.

    Thanks for reading In the Library with the Lead Pipe.
