I began working in the University library system in 1997. Beginning as a temporary employee for Human Resources, I went on to work in Hatcher's Stacks office. In 1998 I started working at the Buhr Shelving Facility where I supervised the Saturday hours. After a few years I started working with the Michigan Digitization Project and in October of 2012 I took over the managing duties of Buhr.
I oversee the day to day operations of the Buhr Shelving Facility. We currently have 2.9 million items in our collection with more being added daily. I also train and supervise our student associates.
In addition to my duties at Buhr, I oversee the transportation of items to and from the Google scan center. I work closely with the staff at campus libraries to coordinate the pulling of books and to make sure the needs of the public and faculty are met. In addition to the book moves, I've been managing the data entry of items in the Buhr Shelving Facility which have not yet been entered into Aleph.
