Executive Director, WebJunction
Sharon has been with the WebJunction team since 2007. A graduate of Indiana University, Sharon performed government research for a Washington, D.C., law firm, which led her to IU’s SLIS program to formalize her information-seeking skills. She then spent the next dozen years in the publishing industry, ultimately managing the book, magazine, and online publishing division of an international engineering association. Although she cherishes the printed book, a decision to focus her career on the emerging online world of communication and content delivery led her to OCLC. As director of WebJunction, Sharon seeks ways to scale library learning and innovation that expands access to knowledge and opportunity for all.
