I am a librarian at Oregon Health & Science University and I code a bit. My undergrad degree is in Computer Engineering and I worked in the software industry in various roles (software testing, technical writing/editing, content management… not very coding-oriented roles) for the better part of a decade before I pursued my library degree, and it took me a few years to land a role in a library after I completed it – OHSU is the first library I’ve worked at, though I did have some librarianlike roles in the software companies I’ve worked at. Both my current and previous role is focused on ontologies/semantic web/linked data, which I feel sets me apart from my colleagues more than my coding skills do. I’m also not very involved or experienced with traditional library technologies or metadata schemas.

Hello I hope you are all well!!
My name is Michael I am a public librarian with the New York public library.
I have been taking cs classes on and off for the last five years. I greatly
enjoy them but feel slightly split between two worlds.
Are there many of us (librarians) who code?? If so please let me know if
you mind having your brain picked.
