I am Executive Director for Networked Library Services at OCLC. I am also a past President of LITA
. On occasion, I am known for pontificating "on stage, in writing, and via the web" on a variety of issues important to libraries.
Before joining OCLC, I was Head of Information Technology at NCSU Libraries
, (1999-2007) where I participated and led several digital library
projects, including ILS migration, web interface design, and the design
and deployment of a faceted browse catalog (Endeca) and Electronic
Resource Management system (E-Matrix). Prior to NCSU, I was a product
manager for library vendor, Innovative Interfaces. Until recently, I
was the "Technically Speaking
" columnist for American Libraries
magazine, the original home
of this blog.
