I’m an Associate Professor of Libraries and Humanities Librarian in the University Libraries at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. I collaborate with students, teachers, and researchers at all levels to foster critical analysis, application, and creation of information and information structures. I teach in multiple environments and for multiple audiences, cultivate and participate in communities of learning and practice, and advance ethical and equitable information ecosystems through teaching, research, and public engagement efforts.
I'm the co-PI of Image Analysis for Archival Discovery (Aida), an NEH– and IMLS-funded project that seeks to leverage the information potential of digital images for discovery in digitized collections, and am a Faculty Fellow in the Center for Digital Research in the Humanities. I'm privileged to be a part of some amazing collaborations and learn every day from my inspiring colleagues, mentors, and friends.
I emphatically believe that libraries of all kinds—academic, public, and more—are crucial to an informed and engaged public and that libraries can and should actively engage in social justice work.
