Amy comes to us from the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) at Woods Hole where she was recently the Digital Systems and Services Coordinator. She has been involved with their Digital Herbarium project, has supported the MBL/National Library of Medicine biomedical informatics class, and has been implementing DSpace and LOCKSS (an electronic archival system for journal content). She comes to us with a lot of talent and skill in several areas of information technology as well as having an excellent commitment to serving the needs of researchers. Amy received her MLIS from the University of Texas at Austin, and a BA in Philosophy and Mathematics from St. John’s College in New Mexico.
