Professional Interests

I'm interested in local and global information flows and in the effective use of digital libraries and technologies for teaching, learning, and knowledge building.

My work has focused on:

  • Digital library structure, systems, resources, services

  • Open knowledge communities, local and global information flows
  • Digital and social media for teaching, learning, research

  • Open education practice and open educational resources (OER)

  • Digital humanities and representation/description of landscape
