My Role

As Assistant Dean for Technical Services & Automation, I provide leadership and vision for the Technical Services division including three distinct departments and two cross-functional areas (see organizational structure). There are three formal departments within Technical Services including Cataloging, Continuing Resources, and Government Documents. I also directly supervise two areas without department heads: firm ordering (one-time purchases) and automation (integrated library system). I have implemented a number of user services including ILLiad, A-Z services, link resolvers, off-campus proxy server, citation software, Google Scholar Linking Service, LibX and the library’s first discovery service. My goal is to help researchers access the information they need and preserve collections for the future.
