I’m going to start a new feature on this site, an “ask Sarah anything” offer of sorts.
I’m calling it “What Sarah Said” (stealing the title from that soul-crushing Death Cab for Cutie song).
Ask me your library/technology/education/intellectual freedom related questions by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “Question for Sarah” or some such thing. I will provide answers in either video or text format, depending on what will help answer the question best. I will happily keep your identity out of the picture, so feel free to send me emails from anonymous/junk email accounts or ask me to keep your name out of it. If you want to give me a pseudonym to use for you, that’s even better. Extra credit for cleverness.
Why am I doing this? I find that I am spending about an hour a day answering questions from people via email–library school students, patrons, futurists, library staff, educators, technologists, journalists, etc. A lot of these questions and my attempt at answers could probably benefit many others… And honestly, I’m spending so much time typing up one-to-one emails that the blogging is suffering. So why not combine the two?
So bring it on–whaddya wanna know?
