I manage patron authentication through OCLC’s EZProxy service. I planned and managed an effort to move from a locally hosted version to an version hosted by OCLC and have made extensive style customizations to the public facing pages to match the institution’s style.

ILLiad

Starting in the fall of 2015, I’ve worked to implement ILLiad for the Brandel Library. This involved coordinating with other library services (SFX, EZProxy, library website) and optimizing the ILLiad workflows (customizing templates, creating routing rules, etc.).
