A digital librarian

I'm the Assistant University Librarian for Digital Library Development & Systems at the University of Pennsylvania. I also teach in Drexel's College of Computing & Informatics. My interests include information architecture, extraction, and retrieval; discovery systems and integrated library systems; digital preservation; content strategy; and more. 

Previously I've worked in a public libraryan academic medical library, a botany library, and a business library; and before library school in several small suburban public libraries, a bustling undergraduate library, and a university archive. I received my MSLIS from Drexel (2007) and a Master's in Computer Science from NYU (2012, thesis). My BA is from Yale (German Studies with a concentration in History of Art).

My personal interests include classical music, foreign languages (especially German, French, and Dutch), playing the piano, urbanism, and (of course) reading. You can usually find me on Twitter and Goodreads.
