I am the E-Learning Librarian and Web Development Administrator at the University of Missouri Libraries. I lead the libraries’ effort to ensure that distributed students of the university and online users of the library have high-quality access to library services. I work collaboratively with librarians, instructors and units on campus that support online learning to ensure that students have access to library resources, learning modules, tutorials and videos within their courses or as independent learners. I also work to provide students resources for digital media and creative projects.
