The Worldly Librarian

International library issues



The Worldly Librarian is published by Hansel Cook, an Academic Librarian and Archivist at Saint Mary’s University, located in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Hansel is also the liaison with the Engineering and Astronomy/Physics departments at the University, the Computers and Connectivity convenor with the Atlantic Provinces Library Association, chair of the Archway committee of the Council of Nova Scotia Archives, and past-president of the Halifax Library Association.

His professional research interests include the areas of overlap between the library and archives communities, the concept of library values from an international perspective, and the effect of war and conflict on libraries and archives.

When not juggling his library and archives hats, Hansel’s other interests include photography, sailing, hiking, running, and cooking.
