I serve as a liaison to the English and Communications departments at the University of Iowa. My responsibilities include: collection development, teaching, and research support for undergraduate, graduate, and faculty populations. I am also very active on campus humanities committees and conversations around alternative-academic placement as I am a PhD without an MLIS. My personal professional interests involve maintaining my own scholarship (my book, Archival Bodies: The American Literary Collections Market since 1955 is forthcoming from the University of Massachusetts Press) and leading an open educational resource game development lab called Human(ities) Games.
