I am a librarian at IUPUI University Library where I am Head of Resource Sharing & Delivery Services and Bibliographic & Metadata Services. In these roles, I supervise all resource sharing services, library shipping, cataloging and metadata creation. My primary professional focus is resource sharing in which I have more than ten years of professional experience.
I am also the Project Coordinator for the ALI-PALNI Shared Print Project. She manages communications between 36 academic libraries, the Academic Libraries of Indiana (ALI) Board, the Private Academic Libraries Network of Indiana (PALNI) Executive Director, and Sustainable Collection Services. I also draft policies, serve on and manage the Policy Group, and have coordinated the digitization of rare, public domain materials from participating libraries. My work in this area has sparked an interest in the intersections of resource sharing and collection management. I recently initiated the creation of the Reference and User Services Association (RUSA) Shared Collections Interest Group and serve as its co-leader.
My research interests include web-based interlibrary loan finding aids, the impact of open access on interlibrary loan, and international interlibrary loan. I have presented on these topics at state, regional, national and international conferences. I served as the 2014/2015 Chair of ALA RUSA STARS, the American Library Association’s section devoted to resource sharing issues, and was named the 2016 Virginia Boucher-OCLC Distinguished Interlibrary Loan Librarian.
