About All-Purpose Guru      About David

Do you like learning and language? Follow the librarian’s blog that’s not just for other librarians.

Lots of librarians write blogs. Most of them blog for other librarians. Many of them blog for the patrons of the particular library they work for. How many librarians blog to help the general public understand libraries and how to make the best use of libraries? So far as I have been able to find, I stand alone.

I also write about research and writing. After all, everyone does research every time they look for something to read in order to answer a question. Everyone writes something. Who better than a librarian to show people how to find their answers most efficiently? Who better than a published author to give good tips on writing?
