Hi, I'm Mike Giarlo, Penn State's digital library architect.

I hope to use this space to explore issues, share information, and generate discussions around digital library architecture.  It's an area I am keenly interested in and curious about.

I'm not sure how often I'll update here, but I wanted to fill this space with some slightly less boilerplatish text. 

Thanks for dropping by.
