I'm a librarian, writer, technoluster, troublemaker, library-politico junky, homebrewer, intellectual freedom fighter, rose-grower, kibitzer, and skilled treadmiller.

I blog at Free Range Librarian, I write essays, and I've written two books and over 100 articles for library publications, including at least one on the piece that made my blog statistics sit up and bark, The User Is Not Broken.

I live in San Francisco with my partner, Sandy (that's the Rev. Dr. Sandy Hulse to you), and our cats.

    "Karen is highly intelligent, articulate, and most of all fun. I was highly impressed with her wit & presentation skills at the 2006 ALA Annual Conference."

    "I've known Karen, electronically and in person, for more years that either of us wants to admit (at least in print). She is one of my favorite, articulate librarians. We can even disagree on an issue and still be friends. I also particularly love her series of big cars in compact car spaces (since I drive the latter, and hate seeing a behemoth in a compact space)!"
