Hi! My name is Angela Critics. A recent empty-nester, I am enjoying the chance to explore new challenges and spend more time on familiar hobbies. Volunteering in a library convinced me to go back to school to pursue my MLIS. During my studies I’ve become fascinated by how technology helps us connect to information. Since a move back to the States, I’m focusing on digital library applications including online book reviews and virtual reference through the Internet Public Library. My previous digital home was at Angela’s Library Space. Now I have three WordPress blogs all linked out of The Quilting Librarian. In addition, some of my reviews appear on the Central Rappahannock Regional Library’s Shelf Life blog.
