SYSTEMS & DESIGN
I am passionate about informing users and patrons about emerging technologies, connecting them to digital and physical collections, and preserving those collections for the future using digital preservation, creating detailed metadata, reformatting, and making collections available online for research, and using conservation and preservation techniques to physically preserve records for generations to come.
Creating responsive, user-friendly digital collection platforms to engage users and patrons.
