I am the Residency Librarian for Scholarly Communications and Collections at the University of Iowa. I hold a B.A. in English Literature from DePaul University and an M.S. in Library and Information Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Between 2011 and 2013, I was a Graduate Assistant at Illinois' Undergraduate Library focusing on reference and instructional services and completing various projects in collection development, outreach, and user experience. Since August of 2013, I have been working in scholarly communications and collections management at Iowa. My work includes coordinating a staff education program on topics in scholarly communications, outreach for the institutional repository, guest speaking on issues of copyright and scholarly publishing, negotiating licensing agreements with content providers, and collections analysis of electronic resources. My research interests include copyright education, scholarly publishing economics, and open access for humanities and social sciences.
