Exploring the possibilities of open-access publishing models, open educational resources, and open peer review; expanding the definition and recognition of scholarship beyond the article and monograph; rethinking evaluation and assessment in higher education
I am the assistant director of scholarly communication and digital projects at Columbia University, where I work alongside a talented team of scholars, thinkers, and doers in the libraries. Before that, I was head of digital initiatives at the MLA, where I was responsible for Humanities Commons, MLA Commons, and CORE. I am a member of the HuMetricsHSS team, which is seeking to establish a framework for values-based assessment and evaluation in the humanities and social sciences; a founding editor of The Idealis, an overlay journal that promotes quality open-access scholarship about scholarly communications issues; and a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Librarianship and Scholarly Communication. I am the mother of one human and the partner of another. If not for them, I would have already adopted all the cats—and a couple of shaggy dogs to boot.
