Hello from KK, the New SCR Technology Coordinator
Hello everyone — and sorry for this late “Hello!”
I’m Shikun (“KK”) Jiang, the new Technology Coordinator for the NN/LM South Central Region. I will teach technology classes, coordinate E-licensing, coordinate open access and scholarly publishing, and serve as the technology advisor for our region. I will also be the state liaison for Louisiana.
Prior to this position, I was an Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) Fellow at the Public Health Library and Information Center at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Atlanta, GA. I got my Master’s degree in Information Science from the School of Library and Information Sciences, University of North Texas, and I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Electronics and Information Technology from South China University of Technology, Guangzhou, China — and yes, I do speak mandarin Chinese and some Cantonese.
In my spare time, I like to travel, cook, and do some painting, and I hope my life will be a long journey full of interesting places, people, food, stories, colors, and so on and so on, if I keep exploring.
I’m excited to be here in this challenging position, and I’m excited to work with all of you and serve your needs. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions. Here is my contact information:
