Only connect.
— E. M. Forster

If our professional lives are a tapestry, then mine has emerged as a cloth of distinct but interwoven threads. The common element is about connection:  bringing together diverse people, organizations and resources in order to enhance individual and collective well-being.

Within the context of libraries, this work is particularly important because connecting people with resources—and with each other—is at the heart of what libraries are all about.
