Hello and welcome to A Word to the Wise...
My name is Sarah Alexander and I like to think of myself as a curious person. I have always wanted to know about things or to know the why of something. This is probably why books and libraries have always been an important part of my life regardless of where I was in the world. It is probably why Librarianship eventually became my choice of career.
I received a B.A. in English from Southeastern Massachusetts University in 1980 and a M.A. in Library and Information Science from the University of Rhode Island in 1983.
I worked in both public and school libraries from 1983 until I retired from education in December of 2014.
Making decision in today's world can be a challenge. Information is everywhere! Many times the search for information can become overwhelming. Therefore, it is my intention that this site be a resource for learning how to retrieve, analyze and use information regardless of format.
