Ashley Riordan

My name is Ashley Riordan. I've worked in academic libraries for more than ten years and I'm currently studying to become a librarian. My primary interests include access services, user experience, information literacy instruction, intellectual freedom, and managing student employees. I am also passionate about information communities and engaging in online projects. Before deciding on a career in libraries, I studied literature and theology.

Climb The Stacks

Climb The Stacks is a video series dedicated to literature. It started in 2013 as a way to share my love of classic literature, literary fiction, and memoir and has evolved into a platform to share what I'm reading and learning with an audience of more than 30,000 subscribers on YouTube.

National Park Chronicles

Inspired by Ken Burns, I set out in 2014 to visit every National Park in the United States. I have been to 21 so far and chronicled my experiences at National Park Chronicles. Follow along as I explore and learn more about our National Parks.
