![Andrea Tarr](/images/2010/andrea_tarr.jpg)[Andrea Tarr] is the designer of the Hathor accessible Administrator template. Andrea got into computers when she was a librarian back in the late 70's by taking home a self-study guide to the IBM System-32/34 and writing the first computerised circulation system in the state of New Hampshire. She currently works as an independent consultant and will shortly receive a Master of Science of Information Technology degree from the Marlboro College Graduate School so that she won't have to keep explaining why a Master of Library & Information Science degree is so valuable in the computer field.
