Barbara Fister

I'm a librarian who works at a liberal arts college in a rural corner of Minnesota where I write blog posts, articles, grocery lists, Tweets, and sometimes fiction. Delighted to become a scholar in residence with Project Information Literacy in 2019. Starting in 2020 I'll be blogging at my own site.
