I'm best known for the role I had in building Credo Reference into a well-respected online reference tool for libraries that is deeply linked into the resources of its host library--thereby serving one of the important features of an online encyclopedia.

Since leaving Credo at the end of 2014 I have begun writing and speaking about Open Access (see posts on my LinkedIn profile). I've put particular emphasis on ways in which the cited sources in newly published works are a window into how open is each discipline's professional literature, and an opportunity to urge scholars and researchers to archive versions of their works.

I also serve on the NISO "Discovery to Delivery Topic Committee" and on the Management Advisory Board for Purdue University Press.
