Electronic and Continuing Resources Catalog Librarian

About Me

Growing up, I moved at least every four years until I got to San Francisco. I felt at home right away. I love the tofu banh mi from Little Vietnam Cafe, samosa chaat and veggie wrap from Chaat Corner, broccoli vegetarian chicken from Hunan Cafe #2, and ANY dessert from Cinderella Bakery and Na Ya.

Focus at Gleeson

My work revolves around making sure all the electronic resources we subscribe to are easily found:

  • Acquiring and loading catalog records
  • Optimizing findability of resources in the Ignacio and Fusion catalogs
  • Conducting reparative and inclusive description and critical cataloging

Additional pleasures

I enjoy my interactions with the USF community:

Research interests

I am currently doing work with:

  • linked data
  • classification and mental models of domain-specific information
  • international librarianship and improving access to electronic resources

Other interests

I am often thinking about:

  • time and space travel
  • history, especially of California, and ephemera
  • collage, analog printing, and bindery processes
  • listening to music all the time
  • ethically navigating a complicated world
