Subject Specialization:

Scholarly Communication


I am the Scholarly Communication Librarian at Villanova University. In this capacity, I lead the library’s efforts to support open access, including the library’s journal-hosting program, the Scholarship Open Access Reserve fund (SOAR), and many other initiatives yet to come! I also assist faculty and students with issues related to scholarly communication and academic publishing.

Prior to joining Falvey Memorial Library, I was a scholarly communication librarian (and previously, a subject specialist) at Queens College, CUNY.  I’ve published on many subjects, including e-books, open access, and colonialism in board games. You can find my publications on CUNY Academic Works.

Please contact me for questions about or assistance with:

  • Open access
  • Author’s rights
  • Self-archiving
  • Choosing reputable publishers
  • Scholarly visibility
  • Copyright help
  • Journal hosting
  • Electronic theses and dissertations

My office is located on the second floor of the library, in Falvey 218C. Feel free to stop by, or to book an appointment (virtually or in person) using the link above.   You can also reach me by email or phone.
