With its innovative spaces, dynamic services, and 10,000 daily visitors, the main University Library at Georgia State University's downtown Atlanta campus is a major campus resource and key partner in student success, learning, and research at all levels. At the University Library, I provide leadership for 35-40 employees in multiple innovative service areas, including campus outreach and instruction, research services (including growing areas of research data support and data literacy instruction), and student technology support. As a member of the library’s senior management team, I provide leadership in planning, implementing, and evaluating operations and services overall. Notable accomplishments include serving as co-director of the grant-funded Public Interest Data Literacy initiative and serving as project lead on CURVE (Collaborative University Research & Visualization Environment), a unique, technology-rich discovery space within the University Library supporting data services, digital scholarship, and visual research.
