I joined the University Library in 2014 as the Metadata Projects Librarian. I work collaboratively with colleagues to advise on, plan, and execute the creation or transformation of metadata in support of Library and University projects. I also provide Metadata Consultation Services and am available to consult with members of the U-M community on:
- Making recommendations on metadata strategies based on project requirements.
- Recommending workflows, standards, and tools for metadata creation and capture.
- Assisting in the development of data models that support discovery, interoperability, and reuse.
- Assisting in the development of transformation strategies for existing metadata.
For resources on metadata and data documentation for the research community, please visit my guide to Metadata and Data Documentation.
I received a Master's degree in Library Science (with a specialization in Digital Libraries) from Indiana University. Prior to that, I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from the University of Wisconsin. I have previously worked at the University of Miami.
