Instructional Technologist for Digital Publishing
I am currently an Instructional Technologist in the Research & Instructional Services group of LTS. My main responsibilities are assisting faculty and students with the use of technology for teaching and learning, and providing assistance with systems such as the content management system and the learning management system.
I began working in libraries in college as a work-study student employee. I earned my BA in Russian and Spanish from SUNY Oswego. I also studied Slavic Languages & Literatures, and Information Science at SUNY Albany. I have an M.S. I.T. from Southern New Hampshire University.
I began working at Wellesley College in July 1997, first as an Acquisition & Cataloging Assistant, then promoted to Digital Library Specialist. In this position, I supported the college website and developed digital collections such as a manuscripts database, an autograph letter collection, sheet music, and smaller collections of maps and illustrated books. I was a member of the BLC Digitization Task Force for 2 years, and have delivered digital library & digitization workshops in many venues. I have presented several times at NERCOMP, NERCOMP SIGS, and Boston Consortium meetings. For two years, I was the program co-chair for Open Apereo, an international open source software conference for higher education.
Over the years, I have held positions at the New York State Library, Albany Medical Center, University of Connecticut, and the New England College of Optometry.
I currently live in Boston, MA.
