Strategic Collections Librarian, University of North Texas
Born and lived: I was born and raised in Austin, Texas, but have lived in several Texas cities, a small town in Oklahoma, and now live in Denton, Texas.
professional career and activities: Previously, I worked at a small Air Force Base Library doing a number of tasks. I currently work in the Collection Development Department at the University of North Texas where I ensure the accessibility of quality Open Access resources in our discovery systems and complete investigations into over-arching or difficult collection activities. I am a member of the Texas Library Association, and the American Library Association, Association for Library Collections and Technical Services. I am invested in the Open Access movement, the transformation of scholarly communications, and the promise it holds for libraries now and in the future.
In my spare time: I love to read, bake, and spend time with my husband and our two dogs, Spartacus the dachshund and Olive the lab.
