Amanda Goodman earned her BA in Multimedia Arts and Sciences which gave her skills in web design, video production, and animation. As a library student, she interned for local archives to learn how to digitize special collections. She built and managed two websites for her LIS department — one in WordPress and the other in Drupal.

Amanda is now the User Experience at Darien Library in Connecticut. She is currently redesigning the Library’s Drupal website, creating marketing materials, and co-managing the technology education classes. In her free time, she teaches WordPress classes online to other librarians and wrote (forthcoming) The Comparative Guide to WordPress in Libraries: A LITA Guide. Additionally, she fulfills the almost universal requirement of librarianship by raising (and being raised by) two wonderful cats.

Amanda blogs daily about her work and can be found on Twitter under her @godaisies handle.


  1. Amanda: I found some good concise information about writing finding aids that I would like to quote in a paper that I am writing (it is about keeping original order). It has your copyright,(LIS_505_Reading_Notes_2010-09-26)and is derived from Roe’s publication, Arranging and Describing Archives and Manuscripts. 1. May I use it with a citation?
    With respect, thanks for your reply.

  2. That particular set includes some scans of charts which were too bothersome to retype. I would suggest skimming over my notes and then looking for the original book on Google Books. You can keyword search to try and find the particular page I was on.
