Anne Beversdorf received her BA magna cum laude, from University of Texas at Austin, and her Masters of Library and Information Science at Indiana University.  Her first decade of work was as sole librarian of three special-libraries, after which she owned an educational software business.  When Pluto squared her Sun she walked away from all of that to practice astrology, both western and Vedic.  In 2016 she joined the Alexandria iBase project as founding librarian, applying her knowledge of astrology to the subject catalog of the AstroCat database. Still a counselling astrologer, Anne is author of Vedic Secrets to Happiness (offering self-diagnosis and appropriate Vedic astrological remedies), the editor of several poetry books, and spends her spare time with textile arts and classical music.

She has read at nearly 20,000 charts since 1993 and has frequently published articles in The Mountain Astrologer, IAM (International Astrological Magazine), and a dozen others astrology periodicals, large and small. Anne has lectured internationally for small groups and large conferences and has a global clientele. 

Nancy Baar

Librarian

nancybaar@gmail.com

Nancy Baar began her library career at Southern Oregon University where she worked in the Circulation Department for 14 years. Her position included a variety of tasks including bookkeeping, training students, web revision, and cataloging documents.  She was also able to use her background as an artist to create posters for library events. 

 

Life circumstances led Nancy to other career choices but her heart was always back at the library.  When she heard about the position with the Alexandria iBase Project, the timing could not have been better. The Covid pandemic had just led to the necessity of a career change, so she jumped at the chance to work for this great organization, and has felt like the stars have been aligned ever since!

Anna Grzeszkiewicz

Librarian

hanya.grz@gmail.com

Anna Grzeszkiewicz earned her Masters in Library and Information Science from San Jose State University and has worked for a variety of libraries for over 30 years. Most of those were as an Academic Librarian with a focus on Research Services and Instruction. After retiring from Southern Oregon University (but still working part-time), she was presented with an opportunity to join a special library project focusing on the field of Astrology.

 

Joining the Alexandria iBase Project team was an ideal next step in her career. It combined her interest in the How and Why of existence and offered a chance to apply her experience to cataloging, a "behind the scenes" specialty in library work.

Enid Newberg, MA Whole Systems Design. Enid has been a librarian, astrologer, childbirth educator, paralegal, IT and web developer and trainer, entrepreneur, administrator, and teacher.

 

In 1993, Enid became involved in the dream of creating an academic college where astrology would be openly taught and joined the board of Kepler College. She was president of the College as it opened from 2000-2001 and again from 2007-2019.  In 2013, her interest in preserving and expanding an understanding of our astrological heritage led her to help establish the Alexandria iBase Project.

 

Enid particularly enjoys introducing students to the dynamic aliveness of an astrological chart. She is also fascinated by astrology's history and philosophy as well as its intersection with magic, spirituality, and culture.

Christeen Skinner

Secretary

christeen.skinner@gmail.com

A practicing astrologer for more than 30 years, Christeen Skinner has been looking at planetary pictures since she was nine years old. She is fascinated by the correlation between particular planetary formations and events on earth. Measuring the apparent links between these pictures and financial markets pleases her immensely. She is deeply committed to the development of greater understanding of the potential of astrology and supportive of those researching links between the planets and trends in music, architecture and politics.

Christeen is a well respected teacher and key player on the astrology speaking circuit, lecturing at conferences in Chicago, Philadelphia, St Petersburg, Cambridge, Ft Lauderdale, Toronto and throughout the UK. In 2004 ‘The Financial Universe’ was published and later this year her latest book ‘Exploring the Financial Universe’ will be published.

TESTIMONIALS

The first time I heard about The Alexandria iBase was at a Georgia Stathis conference at the last UAC in Chicago where she talked to us about this great project. I had not used it until this year that I am doing research on serial killers for a conference that I will give in AstroMéxico, and thanks to this database I was able to identify quite a lot of bibliography on this topic, which was excellent for my analysis. Now I use The Alexandria iBase to discover more texts and authors on other topics. I found it very easy to use, and I love that each book has an index of themes, so I find it ideal for anyone interested in learning more about Astrology.
