Hello, I’m Joshua.

Librarian. Archivist. Teacher.

From Cincinnati, Ohio by way of Alabama, Texas, and New York.

Currently, Director of Library Services at God’s Bible College, a small, Christian 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 am 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.

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

I am a member of the American Library Association,  the Association of College and Research Libraries, the Association of American Archivists, the Ohio Theological Library Association, the Association of Christian Librarians, and Beta Phi Mu.

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.

My interests outside of my job include my family, hiking, traveling, classical, jazz, and choral music, good coffee, great food, and thoughtful conversation.
