I'm a librarian at a university-affiliated research laboratory. We do mostly physical sciences and engineering. I do in-depth literature searching in collaboration with lab staff and I'm also embedded in a few teams. I also work on knowledge sharing initiatives within the lab, do collection development, and teach various how-to courses.

I'm also a doctoral candidate at the iSchool at the University of Maryland. I study lots of different areas in information science, but I'm primarily interested in how social computing technologies impact informal scholarly communication in science.

I'm a member of SLA (Physics-Astronomy-Math and Chemistry Divisions; DC and Maryland Chapters) and ASIS&T.

My old blog (2004-2009) is also called Christina's LIS Rant. From 2009 to 2010, this blog was on Scienceblogs.com.
