Responsibilities:

As the Electronic Access and User Experience Librarian, I am responsible for the management of access to all the Library’s electronic resources, including databases, journals, and ebooks. I maintain the A to Z database list, as well as provide trouble shooting and end user support for any technical access issues that arise.

Additionally, I serve as the librarian lead for the investigation of the user experience in the Library. In this capacity I work closely with other library teams to coordinate and carry out targeted usability studies and assessment on a wide range of existing library services, in order to make recommendations for experiential improvement.

My primary duties above are supplemented by weekly reference service at the reference desk, instruction services as needed by the Library, and collection development responsibilities for the College of Science, Engineering, and Technology.
