Learning Technologies Specialist, Library Operations Tech Team

About

I use technology to develop solutions for Library Operations.  I also provide training and advice on Qualtrics and other web services to librarians and library staff. I do AV support and recording for live events in our meeting and presentation spaces, and I am the tech support for the U-M Computer and Video Game archive.  Look for me at University Library spaces throughout the Ann Arbor campus, and at a conference near you.

Background

I have a BS in Electronic Media from Eastern Michigan University. Before I joined the Library in 2007, I provided IT deployment and consulting services at a number of schools, creative firms, manufacturers, and communcations entities around the Detroit area and the United States.  The best times were when I got to work with my brother Pete.

Responsibilities

Training, support, and evaluation of technologies and tools within Library Operations and the Stephen S. Clark Library for Maps, Government Information, and Data Services.  Support for the Gallery, Gallery Lab, and Clark presentation spaces, and the Computer and Video Game Archive.  Developing and adapting programming for digital signage within Hatcher and Shapiro libraries.  Installation and maintenance of the software and equipment at the CVGA. I also spend some time each week in the stacks office, for the kind of library cred you can't get anywhere else.
