I am the Director of the Copyright & Digital Scholarship Center
in the NCSU Libraries and an instructor in the UNC SILS. Trained as a lawyer and librarian, I guide policy and speak and writes on open culture and navigating legal uncertainty. As presenter coordinator for the ACRL Scholarly Communication Roadshow
, I have developed training materials and workshops for international audiences from Ontario to Abu Dhabi and am currently developing educational materials for SPARC, the Open Textbook Network, and Creative Commons USA.
I am co-PI on two IMLS-funded projects. One is focused on developing OER for teaching scholarly communication
and the other is focused on the development of an “Open Textbook Toolkit
” that leverages library publishing services to support open pedagogy.
