Carol Ann Moon is a native of New Jersey, where she attended Catholic schools (K-12), and began her professional life as an editor. Moon moved to New York in 1986, and recruited students for State University of New York at Purchase, as an Admission Counselor for Liberal Arts, Dance, and Music. In 1988, she migrated south to Central Florida and, shortly thereafter, began her German educator career in public high schools in Orange and Osceola Counties, as well as at the first Saturday Deutsche Schule held at Rollins College, Winter Park. It was during her German graduate studies at the University of Florida in 1995 that Moon experienced library research instruction, an .html coding course, and digital resources like Lexis-Nexis. Ever the pioneer, Moon enrolled in 1998 in the first online graduate course in library and information science at the University of South Florida. And they say, “the rest is history.”
