From September to December 2016, I performed a Directed Fieldwork (DFW) with Seattle Public Library under the supervision of Librarian Linda Johns. Through this DFW, I engaged in a wide range of professional library activities, including programming, weeding, catalog enhancement and more. The entries below link to summaries on my blog - for full entries, please visit my Directed Fieldwork site.
