About

I manage the Digital Scholarship division in the library, and am responsible for maintaining and developing collections for our Digital Resource Commons. I also provide research support and library collection development for students and faculty in the areas of Political Science, Spanish and French. In my previous position I created a Plain Language Medical Dictionary for the iPhone, and continuously investigate the research and learning applications of recent advances in mobile technology.
