As Director of Arts and Humanities in the University of Virginia Library, I lead a team of ten subject liaisons in the arts and humanities, ensuring that library services and collections meet the evolving needs of these disciplines. I provide leadership and vision for the library’s liaison services, with a focus on outreach, engagement, and research support. I am currently the subject liaison for Philosophy and for the American Studies program.
Prior to my current role I was Associate Director of the Library's Electronic Text Center, where I worked on developing and delivering the Center's online collection of TEI-encoded full-text literature. I'm a former member of the TEI Board of Directors and have taught numerous short courses on TEI and XML/XSLT through ALA, ARL, and other organizations. I'm currently co-PI (with John O'Brien and Tonya Howe) on Literature in Context, an NEH-funded project to develop an open anthology of TEI-encoded 18th-century literary texts.
