Library Technology & Discovery Services manages the core library systems and web presence of the BU Libraries. Our focus is on providing an intuitive web and discovery presence centered on patron needs, connecting our rich library resources, services, and welcoming information experts to the BU community.
As a librarian with a deep interest in systems and user experience, my approach is to bring a user-centered and product-oriented approach to the team, to better collaborate across our libraries and university as we continuously improve and meet our community’s research and learning needs.
