Lorena O'English is the Social Sciences and Government Information Librarian at Washington State University Pullman. She has been at WSU since the fall of 2000. She specializes in the areas of political science, criminal justice, sociology, and law (and government publications, which run though everything...) but teaches and otherwise engages with a wide range of academic topics and issues.
Her professional interests include note-taking and web annotation; lifelong learning and information literacy; pleasure reading on college campuses; scholarly communication in the social sciences; and academic use of online productivity tools and new modes of electronic communication.
