Fox has been a librarian at Seattle Public Library for twenty-five
years, working at the Central Library in the reference departments
dealing with the subjects of science, technology, and business.
His working life has seen rapid changes in technology affecting
fundamentally the way libraries and librarians do business.
In the environmental
field Howard represented the Seattle Public Library in the city
of Seattle's efforts to bring city departmental environmental education
programs into the classrooms of Seattle schools and to promote environmental
stewardship among the citizens of Seattle. As part of these initiatives
Howard worked with colleagues to develop the Environmental Information
Center in the Central Library (http://www.spl.org/environment/environm.html).
He also secured a grant to update the city of Seattle's "TREE
- Teaching Resources in Environmental Education - Guide" by
creating the Seattle Environmental Education Homepage (http://seeh.spl.org).
Most recently Howard
has been an active staff participant in planning for the building
of a new Central Library to be built as part of the successful Seattle
bond issue passed in 1998. Included in that work are plans to restructure
the delivery of reference services in the new library slated to
open in 2003.
