- Where are you from?
- Current work or internship:
- Educational goal at Pratt?
- In what kind of museums/libraries are you interested in working?
- Semester at Pratt:
- What’s your guilty pleasure?
- What group are you in?
My answers are….
- Name: Starr Hoffman

- Current work or internship: In addition to teaching at Pratt, I’m the Journalism & Data Resources Librarian at Columbia University.
- Educational goal at Pratt? To help us learn and explore ways to organize information together–and have some fun!
- In what kind of museums/libraries are you interested in working? I’ve been working in academic libraries since 2005.
- Semester at Pratt: This is my third semester teaching at Pratt.
- What’s your guilty pleasure? Mine is eating vanilla frosting out of the can, reading YA fantasy, and watching Star Trek: The Next Generation.
- No group for me! 😉
