Each week we will spotlight feature one of our executive board officers to introduce them to fellow ALASC members!

Role: Newsletter Editor

Program: MLIS, second year

Looking forward to: Facilitating a discussion about the crucial role of libraries in the modern world.

Fun facts: I follow politics and policy, not just in the United States but also in the United Kingdom and Australia. I also enjoy reading (of course), watching college football, and collecting my favorite excerpts from famous speeches and literature.

About Patrick: I grew up on the Oregon Coast, received my undergraduate degree from Eastern Oregon University, and continue to love living in the Pacific Northwest.  When I was a young boy my family was of relatively modest means, and libraries certainly opened up a world of opportunities for me. So an MLIS and a career path in librarianship holds a special place in my heart. I really enjoy getting to know fellow students at SJSU – please never hesitate to get in touch!
