I'm a librarian and web developer with professional experience in information technology, reference, and circulation.

As the ILS & Discovery Services Librarian at Central Oregon Community College, I manage technology and web properties for Barber Library. My responsibilities include...

  • Developing the library's websites in OmniUpdate, LibGuides, and a virtual private server
  • Training and supporting staff in the use of the Integrated Library System (Ex Libris Alma and Primo) and other library-specific software like ILLiad and OCLC Connexion
  • Managing patron and catalog records in Alma
  • Liaising with IT to purchase and troubleshoot specialized library technologies, like the KIC Bookedge and microfilm scanners

At the college level, I participate in the Technology Advisory Committee and handle marketing for the Teaching Learning Center. I represent COCC in the Orbis Cascade Alliance through the Systems, Discovery, and Technical Services teams and the Primo Customization Standing Group. In addition, I provide reference services, advocate for Open Educational Resources, and teach Information Literacy sessions.
