I joined Brock in 2002 as Electronic Services Librarian, and have held various roles in the Library, including Acting Associate University Librarian (Collections, Liaison, and Systems; 2014-15) and Interim University Librarian (2015-16).  I have been in my current role as department head for Library Systems & Technology Services since 2006.

Library Systems & Technologies Services department team members maintain and administer most of the front-facing and support technologies in the Library, and service/operate the Library’s Makerspace .

My research interests focus on the use of technology in libraries, including (but not limited to): digital and physical making; developing creative, open-source software solutions to common library problems; and the use of open source hardware in libraries.
