About Me

Cataloger of all things rare, digital, and print and data janitor at Ellis Library at the University of Missouri in Columbia. I have been the Medical Library Association’s representative (6 years) to the American Library Association’s Committee on Cataloging: Description and Access and have taught cataloging courses at the Mizzou School of Information Science & Learning Technologies. I was a member of the RSC+ Committee, working on the RDA 3R Project and chaired the Fictitious Entities Working Group. Ask me anything about cataloging or metadata!
