New face on the Dewey editorial team
We’re delighted to announce the appointment of Violet Fox as a new editor on the Dewey team. Violet previously worked as a summer Dewey intern in 2012 and 2013; since then, she’s worked in cataloging and metadata at the University of Illinois at Chicago and St. John’s University in Collegeville, Minnesota. She received her MLIS from the University of Washington in 2013 and has an undergraduate degree in history. Her professional interests include exploring the ethical implications of classification and empowering library workers to be an active part of making subject access more responsive to user needs. In her spare time, Violet sends snail mail, visits offbeat museums, organizes zine events, and writes about roadside attractions in her own zine.
