August 2008

What a summer! It’s been an eventful time, to say the least!

Kate Silfen and I published an article together titled “Evidence-based practice and library instruction: An assessment of student reference lists” in the Behavioral and Social Sciences Librarian.

Here is a link to the official NASW, The New Social Worker magazine, & socialworkchat.org partnership announcement. socialworkchat.org offers social workers twice weekly, moderated chats on assorted topics and a moderated bulletin board system for messages. As a staff member, I currently moderate both the Technology & Social Work and the Social Work Research bulletin boards.

I’ve been asked to serve on Mayor Menino’s Young Bostonian Advisory Council for ONEin3 Boston, which serves “to improve the quality-of-life for young people living in the City of Boston.” I’ll be serving on the Young Families subcommittee.

I completed my research assistant work with the Cash & Counseling Project of the Center for the Study of Home & Community Life at Boston College. I helped edit their upcoming Handbook titled Long-Term Care Services and Supports: A Handbook on Self-Direction.

Under their slogan “art is everywhere,” the kind folks at art nouveau magazine have republished my ode to Trident Bookseller’s perfect chocolate cake as an article in their July-August issue (also known as issue 4)! How exciting and cool that my chocolate cake description has earned this artistic honor. Read the article at art nouveau here.
