Howdy and Welcome!

I’m the Bicentennial Metadata Librarian at Amherst College and a Substitute Library Assistant at Pelham Public Library. I was a nurse for 9 years prior to transitioning into librarianship. I am passionate about metadata, discovery, information literacy, learning, all things open (access, data, and education), science, healthcare, and critical pedagogy. 

Below you’ll find links to pages highlighting examples of my professional skills. 

You can see examples of my MODS metadata creation by viewing a collection I’ve worked on in Amherst College Digital Collections, and you can see examples of Dublin Core metadata records I’ve created or quality controlled in the Thomas Barton Papers.
