Welcome!

I'm Amanda Larson! I am currently on the job market. I would love to continue my work in Open Educational Resources either as a librarian or consultant.

More broadly, I am looking for a position as an academic librarian, archivist, cataloger, or consultant. A few things I specialize in are Open Educational Resources, metadata, and cataloging. I am an avid lover of technology, and bring enthusiasm for both user experience and diving under the hood of an interface and coding.

I am originally from Ohio where I attended Lourdes University for my undergraduate degrees in English and History. After that I attended Eastern Michigan University where I earned a Master of Arts in Literature. My thesis combined my love of crafting and literature. 

Ready for my next adventure, I moved to Madison, Wisconsin to attend the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Library & Information Studies. In the past two years, I've diversified my interests to focus on both archives and libraries. A self-styled library-archives hybrid, I am passionate about technology, open educational resources, and metadata.

A self-proclaimed geek who loves steampunk and video games. In my spare time, I hone my post-apocalyptic life skills by knitting, sewing, and canning food.
