Paul Wright received his Masters in Library and Information Science from Indiana University, Bloomington in 1989. From his time in library school through a career in academic libraries and into straight up information technology, Paul has always been fascinated by the relationships between data, information and knowledge.
Computers, databases and information networks are all just ways of creating, storing and disseminating data and information and Paul has been immersed in all of it in one form or another since his first professional position in the Miami University Libraries. Paul was online when the Internet was still a collection of GOPHER servers and WAIS was the latest buzzword. Paul’s career in information science and technology evolved along with the Internet. Humble beginnings maintaining GOPHER sites evolved into creating and maintaining Web sites. Ever seeking to understand the tiniest details of these new ways of creating and sharing information Paul’s career took him away from libraries and into the realm of pure technology, first through unix systems administration, then into local and wide area network design and administration. As the Internet grew into the World Wide Web and beyond, so did Paul’s involvement in the underlying technologies that make internet communications possible.
Paul Wright has been a Web developer, a network security specialist, a systems integrator, a network engineer, and a database administrator. He has never, however lost his interest in the actual information that these technologies support. Librarianship and access to information have always been his core passion.
Paul Wright is standing by to bring this passion for information and communications to your organization.
