I am the Serials & Electronic Resources Librarian at the William H. Hannon Library of the Loyola Marymount University. I am curious about the impetus and development of information systems. I have researched extensively on the topic of in-house programs designed to help manage the acquisition of electronic resources. Most recently I have turned research focus to marketing and promotion of electronic resources. In 2013 I was selected as an LMU Senior Vice President Fellow.
