Catherine and Hans the Polar Bear at ALAHi! I’m Catherine Odson, a customer-focused public librarian passionate about reinventing libraries for 21st century communities. My official focus is technology, but I am a generalist to the max. I frequently scheme to bring more books and yoga into my work.

The official stuff: I hold an MS in library and information science from Drexel University (Beta Phi Mu) and a BS in journalism from the University of Kansas (Phi Beta Kappa).
