Hi, Leni,

What does the job of "Educator in Residence" entail?
It sounds like something I might be interested in.  I've already told my school
that next year will be my last -- a nice round ten and new programs in place
makes it seem time to move on to something else.  A year at American Memory
would be a nice complement to my year as ALA Sibert Committee chair and much
reading of non-fiction books.  And I'd love to do more with the computer
techniques I've been learning.
