I am the Electronic Services Librarian at Middlebury.  I am a member of Academic Consulting Services in LIS, our merged Library and Information Services organization.  I have served as library and technology liaison to many departments in my 6 1/2 years at Middlebury.  Currently, I am a member of the Curricular Technology Team, a cross-functional team consisting of individuals drawn from several different areas within LIS.   I also serve and the technology liaison to the summer Language Schools.  Along with serving on the Web Redesign Committee, I am a project manager for several departments’ Web makeovers.   I am the admin for SubjectsPlus (the open-source platform for our library subject guides) and CONTENTdm.  To varying degrees, I have my admin hand in several other systems, including: the library catalog (Web interface), EZProxy, library’s current website,  and Segue, our courseware.   Additionally, I support these systems through training and troubleshooting.  I provide training and support for library databases and tools as well as providing research instruction and consultation to students, faculty, and staff.

Background: In past lives (borrowed this idea from Dave W.) I worked at a dot-com, taught English as a 2nd language (in US and abroad) and German.  I am foreign language as well as a tech geek.  MLIS from Pitt.  MA, BA from UF.
