I also have experience working with COUNTER compliant reports, EOCR and EDI, metadata harvesting via Z39.50, OpenURL linking, and other standards.

EBSCO Discovery Service

I led the Brandel Library’s implementation of EBSCO’s Discovery Service and currently lead the maintenance and assessment activities for my institution.

OCLC Services

I have experience using OCLC’s Connexion Client, WorldShare Interlibrary Loan, and WorldShare Metadata services.

Electronic Resource Management

I manage all of my institution’s electronic resources over their entire life cycle, including acquisition, licensing, assessment, and maintenance. I use a variety of tools to complete this work, including an Electronic Resource Management tool (CORAL), MarcEdit, and link checking software.


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.


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.).


I work as the SFX administrator for my library where I have improved performance and reduced errors to under 1% by updating the underlying KnowledgeBase and improving the user interface. I also serve on a statewide committee (CARLI’s SFX System Committee) that researches and promotes best practices for this tool.


I frequently use MarcEdit to batch edit electronic resources records and have experience adding URL proxy information, adding and changing call numbers, and modifying field information. Continue reading “MarcEdit”
