Hello librarians, students, bookworms, and steampunk enthusiasts! My name is Constance and I’ll be your librarian.
This website was created, originally, as my final class project for my MLIS. I wanted to build a web resource for librarians who want to know more about steam literature / genre based reader’s advisory, but that could also be used by those who are part of the culture and want to build it into their library programing. Thus Steampunk Library was born!
Here I’ll host programing ideas, book reviews, artist suggestions, movie reviews, and resources from around the web. I’ll also host video book talks, event reviews, and other fun stuff related to the genre.
Constance, a children’s librarian who loves all things Steam. I have an BA in English Lit and Irish Studies, an MLIS from the University of British Columbia, and am working on my MEd. I’m an avid reader, researcher, presenter, cos-player, and cat lover.
To create a web resource for librarians, students, teachers, and bookworms. Here we can share book talks, book reviews, research, events, build programing ideas, and bring steampunk into our libraries – public, academic, and at home.
As the project grows I hope to spend more time as a moderator and be one of many content contributors, not the only one. Check out the submissions page to send in your reviews, projects, pictures, or any other material you’d like to have hosted here.
How This Works:
Posts are categorized based on use: reviews (books are split into fiction and nonfiction), programing, media (music, art, and more), and general web resources. Each post is then tagged for its audience, genre, or other applicable key words.
This site is intended to act as an active community resource – postings are a mix of my own material, guest posts, and shared online material.
As an academic I understand the damage plagiarism can do. If you find a post that has not been properly cited please let me know and I will fix it immediately.
