Instructor Biographies


Jonathan Betz-Zall
I celebrated thirty-one years of work as a professional librarian this year. Starting in a technical library, I moved quickly to my real love, public service work, in San Francisco, Philadelphia, and Seattle. After twenty-five years working in public libraries primarily with children, I obtained a second master's degree in Environment and Community and became an academic librarian. I now specialize in Information Literacy Instruction and Environmental Education, assist students at Highline College, teach online for the University of Maryland University College, and consult through ecolibrarian.
