I am a librarian with experience in disciplinary repository development, digital
library collection development, strategic planning and digital project management, and
research data management services. My interests are the communication of scholarly
scientific works; disciplinary repositories; open access; the copy- and author rights
that enable sharing of research results; and the metrics for evaluating scholarly
influence.
