Professional Role

As Assistant Dean for Technical Services & Automation, I provide leadership and vision for the Technical Services division (see organizational structure). Formal departments within Technical Services include Metadata & Digital Initiatives along with Continuing Resources. I also directly supervise government documents processing, collection applications and automation. 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.
