SUMMARY OF QUALIFICATIONS

I am a technology-savvy Information Specialist with over nine years of experience working in libraries, most recently at the National Library of Canada and the Library of Congress, where I have been involved with digital imaging and making collections available on the World Wide Web. I am an independent Web developer who through self-motivation has become a Web presence through the use of Internet publicity and created money generating sites through direct campaigning of advertisers. I am a quick study in computing applications, have technical writing experience, and am productive, efficient, and organized in my work.

I am looking for a library, information, or web-related position in the Toronto area.
