I am currently the Communications Librarian at the Ryerson University Library & Archives, where I oversee both internal and external communications for the library and archives in order to facilitate awareness and promotion of library resources, services, and support for students, staff, and faculty.
Previously, I was the Special Collections Librarian at the University of Toronto Scarborough. As a member of the UTSC Library's Digital Scholarship Unit, I oversaw archival and special collections, manage digitization projects, and facilitate the creation of digital projects and collections using Drupal, Islandora, and associated software. I worked to construct sustainable platforms and projects that will contribute to the university and the development community.
I believe in open access, open source, open data, and epic fantasy novels.
