If you would like to know more about my background as a researcher and writer, visit Library Consultant Services LLC website,libraryconsultantservices.com. As a former librarian with both a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Fine Art and a Masters of Science degree in Information Science (Library Science) with a minor in Instructional technology from Wayne State University. In the time of my life, with an extensive background in my field of work, I have acquired on the job experience with computer research, document processing, desktop publishing talent, and the skill in developing small resource centers. As a technical librarian for Ford Motor Company, hired through Bartech, Inc., a temporary employment agency in Dearborn, Michigan, I was given the responsibility of not only managing the departmental resource center, but I actually designed and created it. I also published a departmental library center newsletter and provided acquisition services for engineers needing special manuals and professional related documents. I served Ford Motor Company’s Wheel and Tire Division for two years until they were forced to downsize the engineering staff in which the need for the department resource center was made obsolete. The managers of that department in which I am proud , gave me a most favorable recommendation. Before being hired to Ford Motor Company, I was a technical librarian for the United States Army Corps. Of Engineers in Detroit, hired by a consultant agency, Action Management Corporation, now one of my prospective clients. I learned website designing while servicing them and began my own personal website, My Corner of the World Newsletter, thereafter. I found that I could publish my ideas and writings and expose them to more people than I could any other way. So I decided that I would take my librarianship in another direction that combined my traditional library skills, artistic creative skills and research talent into one conglomerate.

Because I am comfortable working independently and having the jurisdiction of making my own decision about the operation of my business, I can design client requests without hindrance. I feel that being an entrepreneur suffices my objectives. Researching and locating historical and rare information is one of my strongest attributes in the Information research field.
