Who I am


I am the Gray Family Chair for Innovative Library Services at Oregon State University.

Before coming to OSU, I was an American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) Public Fellow at Anvil Academic, a digital humanities publisher sponsored by the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) and the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education (NITLE). While at Anvil I served as Program Coordinator, helping to create editorial partnerships, engage in social media relations, and implement digital publishing strategies for a number of humanities projects.

Prior to this I held a CLIR Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Michigan’s Michigan Publishing, where I developed campus-wide outreach efforts around open access publishing and digital humanities training and discussion.

I earned my PhD in English Language and Literature from the University of Michigan. I was also a Lecturer in the English department at Michigan from 2010-2011.

I’ve blogged extensively for both Anvil Academic and Michigan Publishing. My co-authored chapter on humanities data publishing in the ALA/ACRL publication Getting the Word Out: Academic Libraries as Scholarly Publishers is forthcoming in 2014.
