As the Discovery Librarian, I work with a variety of departments in the University Libraries to improve access to and discoverability of library resources. I collaborate across the Libraries on projects ranging from e-resource management to implementing linked data on the library website and digital collections. In this role, I also chair the Libraries’ Discovery Committee which helps guide development and configuration of library discovery tools and systems such as WorldCat UMD. My current research interests include linked data, library systems interoperability, and implementing computer programming for improving metadata and e-resource management workflows.
