I am the Collections Strategist at the University of Iowa Libraries, where I have
worked since 2003. My current position involves collections budget analysis, resource
selection and analysis, and scholarly communication outreach, with a focus on author
rights. I have a particular interest in scholarly publishing trends and processes and the
relationships between libraries, publishers and authors. I am the current editor of the
journal Collection Management (published by Routledge).
