Recently I was hired as the Digital Initiatives and Scholarly Communications Librarian for the West Virginia University Libraries. Working as a librarian allows me to combine my background in book publishing with my technology skills. I received my Masters in Library and Information Science from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, worked as the Project Coordinator for the development of UIUC's Digital Libraries Education Program, and am close to completing the Certificate of Advanced Study in Digital Libraries. My current research involves looking at the data curation needs and practices of digital humanities scholars in order to assess what role the library can play in preserving their content.
