I'm Justin Unrau, a writer/gamer/librarianaut. That last word refers to being a travelling book person. While I enjoy and am comfortable with the media of the twenty-first century, but deep in my soul I'm a book lover.
I'm also, and more to the point here, perhaps, an MLIS student at UBC's School of Library Archival and Information Studies. I'm on a Co-Op term with Prosentient Systems in Sydney, Australia until December 2011, when I'll return to finish my degree before 2012 is done.
I've worked in public libraries, where I did storytimes for preschoolers, helped people research obscure northern Manitoban poets and got in trouble for blogging about it. Two out of three of those were fun.
