About Brendan Ryan

I am a librarian who is very interested in emerging technologies. In particular, I gravitate towards open source and free technologies that can enhance academic library services. I focus on the ways that new digital methods can democratize education and move us collectively towards a just society. Presently, I work in the Rhode Island College library as a Digital Initiatives Librarian. In the past I functioned in reference services at RIC. I have worked at Providence College in an access services capacity. Presently, I am engaged in archiving AS220 Providence at Rhode Island College. I am very interested in the way social history can be preserved and disseminated through digital archives.
