Daniel Crocker started his Emerson career in 2008, and now enjoys managing the library's vast collection of electronic resources and online portals to knowledge and fun. A trained and dedicated generalist, he knows the process of research requires both passion and patience, and, as available, as much time as can be found. The library's collections of DVDs, scripts, books and magazines are a regular source of inspiration to him, but the fuel that fires his dedication is the talent and desire to learn exhibited by students, faculty and staff at Emerson and our surrounding college partners.
There are two sorts of questions librarians cannot answer: those requiring a legal degree (“Would I get into trouble if...”) or a medical degree (“Does this look wrong or sick?...”) to answer properly. Everything else is on the table.
“A university's essential character is that of being a center of free inquiry and criticism - a thing not to be sacrificed for anything else.” -- Richard Hofstader
