Bio

As a Digital Publishing Coordinator at the Eccles Health Sciences Library, I archive, digitize, and assist in cataloging materials belonging to the Eccles Health Sciences Library. These include both born-digital and analog materials documenting major figures and events relative to the history of the health sciences at the University of Utah, records and faculty papers, and medical research from a variety of partners. My role also involves applying metadata, promoting collection materials published by EHSL, and providing digital library services to patrons. I am passionate about digital collections, digital preservation, archives, and promoting outreach that communicates the importance of digital collections work in libraries today.
