Wheelock College Library: Introducing: Jeff Pearson

Introducing: Jeff Pearson

Name: Jeff Pearson

Job title: Library Technology Specialist

Location in Library: Lower Level of the Library, right at the bottom of the stairs.

Tell us what you do in 5o words or less: the title is actually pretty descriptive. I provide support for everything "technological" in the library, especially printing and copying from our public machines and printers, and all of our AV equipment. I also specialize in virus/spyware removal and any other software issues surrounding student laptops.

Choose one service that your department provides that you want the Wheelock community to be aware of: Student laptops, student laptops, student laptops. All virus and spyware problems, as well as device install issues, Windows update problems, and document corruption issues, all are welcome.

What is your favorite website? Here I'll cheat and list two, flip-sides of the same interest: www.nytimes.com and www.theonion.com. I'm a "newsie" and enjoy current events, both serious and humorous. It's hard to beat the New York Times for reasoned, impartial news coverage. And it is equally hard to beat the clever and outrageous takes on the news that The Onion provides. I think they should be read in tandem, just to be sane.

What is your favorite book in the Wheelock Library collection? David McCullough's John Adams (http://endeavor.flo.org/vwebv/holdingsInfo?bibId=649198) is one of my favorite Wheelock holdings. Along with being a "newsie", I really like American history.

When I'm not at work, you can find me... Singing! At church, at Chorus pro Musica (www.choruspromusica.org), in my Barbershop Quartet. I also love to cook--and eat. I watch movies and read to pass the time and love to hike and camp.
