In recent years I have reconnected with old friends and colleagues, but today for the first time I reconnected with a colleague through a listserv posting. I recently joined the College Librarians listserv and found a posting by Patricia. As I have mentioned in this blog before, I worked at the Science and Technology Division of NYPL from 1983-1990. Near the end of my tenure there Patricia worked in the division as an intern.
She had posted about using the Wikipedia as a teaching tool. I referred her to one of my colleagues who teaches a class at NJIT where students expand on a stub in the Wikipedia.
Patricia worked in medical libraries for some time and now works in a New York City high school library. She was glad that I remembered her and the nickname she used back then.
