Jesse Lambertson, MA, MLIS loves language at play in the world –  He’s been influenced by the words of Jorge Luis Borges, “The universe (which others call the Library) is composed of an indefinite and perhaps infinite number of…” He cycles, reads and tweets. Three words to describe Jesse, make that four – inquisitive, intelligent, driven and genuine. Jesse worked for a Arlington Public Library;  he held a technical services internship at Folger Shakespeare Library where he created EAD encoded XMLfinding aids in Archivists Toolkit, cataloged and worked with their Luna Insight digital image database; he worked as Metadata Specialist for Neighborhood Writing Alliance where he produced documentation of best practices for adding metadata and set standards for tagging terminology; and has volunteered for several non-profit organizations committed to arts and science education and literacy. He has a BA in History from North Carolina State University, a MA in English from the University of North Carolina and a MLIS from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. 

Jesse is currently a cataloger at Georgetown Law Library.
