About Tamara Marnell

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

I completed both my BS and MLS at Indiana University. During and after my master's program, I worked in web development for the Lilly Library and the departments of Biology and Chemistry, collaborating with faculty to design websites, databases, and content management systems.

In summer 2013 I relocated to Oregon to join the staff of Portland Community College (PCC) Library. As part of the Digital Services Team, I administer most library technologies. I develop and maintain the PCC Library website in WordPress, configure and customize the Integrated Library System (Ex Libris Alma/Primo), manage access to electronic resources through EZProxy, and install and support applications for staff like ILLiad, SpineOMatic, and Bibliotheca RFID software.

At the college level, I liaison with PCC's IT department to manage library servers and authentication systems, and I serve on the interdepartmental Administrative Systems Committee. At the Alliance level, I represent PCC on the Systems Team and the Primo Toolkit Working Group.

This portfolio contains my academic and work-related projects to date.
