Professional & research experience

December 2015 - Present: Stanford Libraries

Head Librarian and Bibliographer, Harold A. Miller Library My main goals are to: 1. support excellence in research by any means necessary, with physical and virtual library spaces and collections; 2. facilitate effective stewardship and curation of information and data generated by the research community at Hopkins Marine Station; 3. extend the preservation efforts of HMS archive collections to create actionable research products, thus broadening their utility and impact; and, 4. share the remarkable work of Hopkins researchers with our local community through meaningful engagement with diverse audiences.

I am responsible for the overall management of the Harold A. Miller Library at Hopkins Marine Station. I make purchase decisions for books, journals, and electronic resources in marine sciences. I help Hopkins residents find the information they need, procure documents not available on site or online, and provide instruction on use of physical and virtual library resources and spaces. I manage and support use of our fabrication space. I also provide research services, including consultations on data management, sharing and curation. I manage the Miller Library’s web pages and Facebook presence.
