About me

As the database specialist, I work to ensure the library’s databases are consistently accessible and troubleshoot any problems users may have with these resources on or off-campus. I manage the database notices and alerts page to keep users informed of reported issues, scheduled maintenance, and changes to database platforms. Additionally, I work closely with our vendors to arrange trials for evaluation.
