About

Hello! I’m Joshua Avery, a librarian and historian from Cincinnati, Ohio.

Currently, I’m the Director of Library Services at God’s Bible College, a Bible college in Mount Auburn, one of Cincinnati’s oldest neighborhoods and first suburbs. In addition to being involved in almost every aspect of academic librarianship, I teach courses in information literacy, management and leadership, and history. I’m also privileged to serve as an associate editor for The Christian Librarian, a journal focusing on issues relating to libraries in institutions of higher education.

I studied at God’s Bible College, the Community College of the Air Force, the University of Cincinnati, Miami University, and the University at Albany (SUNY).

My interests as a researcher and speaker include issues of open access, integrated library systems, social media, library management, human computer interaction (HCI), religion and information, and folksonomies.
