Four years ago I was appointed Hacker in Residence at the University of Prince Edward Island’s Robertson Library. The appointment came out of my desire, as a non-librarian, non-academic technologist and libraryophile, to find a way to engage more fully in the life of the library, and to use the lens of librarianship and the academy to inform my work in the community. The position is unpaid and comes with no responsibilities; I’ve variously succeeded and failed at making the best of it. And in this talk I’ll tell my story, leading to some thought about why your library might benefit from following the same path.
