I’m so glad you’ve stopped by for a visit. My name is Graham Lavender. This page was originally written entirely in third person, which may have been better for my site’s SEO, but this is much more intimate, don’t you think?
I love information and technology. I’m currently the Associate Librarian at the Michener Institute in Toronto, but I’ve worked in various academic libraries and in web development, and I’m always looking for new ways to harness technology to connect people with the information they need. If you’d like to know more about my career, check me out on LinkedIn. When not saving the world through the web, I enjoy drinking fine Darjeeling tea, taking photos of the people and landscapes around me, and spending time with my wonderful librarian wife and our adorable little future librarian.
I started blogging while working on my Master of Library and Information Studies degree in 2008, after seeing a presentation on starting your own blog by John Dupuis. My blog was originally called The Inspired Library School Student, and it covered issues of interest to other students; old ILSS posts are still available in the GrahamLavender.com blog archives.
