Joe wible at work and play


I retired on September 15, 2015 and received emeritus status.  The 2015 research trip to Palmyra got postponed, but I hope I to participate on the third and final trip of the research project in the summer of 2016.  If I do, I will resurrect my blog.



I will be making my second trip to Palmyra Atoll this summer to help with a research project looking at the impact of parrot fish on coral recruitment.  I did a daily blog last summer and hope to do the same this year.  Check it out for pictures and to learn about the challenges of doing research in a remote, exotic location.  The hot link above will work, or just search Google for Palmyra Librarian and you will find it.





Diving into books, oceans, and Foreign lands

To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal from many is research.

We live in an age of information overload.  We need libraries and professional librarians to explain what this explosion of information means.
