I am an information professional committed to ensuring free access to scientific knowledge for the public good. My areas of specialization as a science librarian are strengthened and informed by my professional background in cooperative extension and scholarly publishing. I provide expertise in agricultural research support, digital publishing, and digitization of historic print materials.  I have research interests in digital literacy skills and the role of academic libraries in scholarly publishing.
