Key Responsibilities

  • altmetrics (measuring the impact of scholarship in many forms using non-traditional methods)
  • the blurring of lines between librarians and instructional technologists
  • MOOCs

Personal

Outside of work, I play ice hockey and train at Daybreak Crossfit. I tweet a lot (sometimes about libraries and technology) and post photos of my dogs on Instagram and Flickr.
