funny, and beautiful. I could go on and on. I think everyone
should hire her."
MEET BARBARA MOORE
How often does the image of a middle-aged woman and former librarian come to mind when you think of a techie? Yes, that describes Barbara Moore, owner of Net Results, a business that trains people how to use their computers, troubleshoots computer problems, and provides web site consultation.
In 1996 Barbara started her business. This was after she had been a librarian for more than 25 years. She never dreamed that she would go into business for herself. But she loves it. She loves training.
Her last librarian position was as Assistant Director of Libraries for Automation at the University of Rochester. At the University she experienced first hand how exciting it is to access information on the Internet. She was a key player in the development of the University's web site.
Barbara has had the experience of working with computers in libraries. She installed the first automated library system for the Monroe County Library System -- a system of public libraries located near Rochester, New York.
One of her proud accomplishments from her library history: Receiving Honorable Mention for her Barbie Doll morgue entry to American Libraries' 101-uses-for-a-dead-catalog contest (November 1982). (Well, think about it. Aren't Barbie Dolls a perfect fit for those old card catalog drawers?!!)
And if you want to go way back ... Barbara can tell stories of trudging to the computer center (uphill, in the snow, with no shoes of course) to keypunch Fortran code on computer cards.
Barbara believes in giving back to her community. Her business was a major contributor to BiblioBuild, Rochester's first Habitat for Humanity house built by library workers. She donates her time to create and maintain websites for NOW - New York State and Rochester NOW. She also maintains a blog for the Shoulders to Stand On project of the Gay Alliance of the Genesee Valley.
She is a member of the Rochester Professional Consultants Network (RPCN) and follows its Code of Ethics. She is also a member of the Rochester Women's Network.
You may enjoy reading the following articles. Barbara wrote all but four of the articles. All were published in Rochester, NY area newspapers, magazines and newsletters. You can also visit her blog, Moore Computer Tips.
