Associate Dean, Discovery, Access, & Technology
I have been the AD for Technology, Discovery and Technology (DATech) at JMU Libraries since October 2020. I have an interest in a variety of topics from collection strategies, linked data, user interfaces to the application of technology in libraries. It is a privilege to work with the JMU community to meet the evolving information needs of the campus.
