I work in Cooperative Purchasing and Electronic Resources Services (CPERS) at Minitex. I've been here since 2008, which makes me the newbie in CPERS! Before Minitex, I have played many roles in libraries including: Collection Development Librarian at Tandem Library Group, a book jobber for the K12 library world; Digital Acquisitions Specialist in the Harvard University Library; front line circ worker at the Barker Engineeing Library at MIT; and librarian at D. E. Shaw & Co., a hedge fund in NYC. Non-library Anne? I've edited travel guides and spent a year honing my customer service skills at the front desk of a ski resort (skiing in my off time, of course). And in my spare time, I run, bake, and play goalie (ice hockey!).
