Florida Academic Library Services Cooperative, Florida Virtual Campus, Gainesville, FL

April 2015 - June 2020: Digital Library Services and Open Educational Resources Coordinator

The Florida university and community college library systems have a centralized organization for technology services, the online catalog, and electronic resources licensing - the Florida Virtual Campus (FLVC). The Florida Academic Library Services (FALSC) is a branch of FLVC. I supported the digital library section in this organization, and worked to support the statewide Islandora platform, currently powering digital libraries for 13 campuses with 11 more digital libraries in development for future launch, and Florida Online Journals, a platform implemented in Open Journal Systems (OJS) software and currently hosting 23 journals. In support of the digital library platform, I worked with a team to maintain documentation, including a FALSC support wiki geared toward libraries in Florida, contributing to the open source community through documentation and maintaining portions of a training manual for the Islandora software, and I frequently met with incoming librarians and archivists around the state to onboard and introduced to technologies supported by FALSC. In my time at FLVC/FALSC, I became comfortable in backend technologies which underlie the web HTML and desktop software, including significant time in a Unix environment, and passing familiarity with SQL and shell scripting. I also became familiar with XSLT and XML manipulation, and was the primary maintainer of metadata XML forms used in the Islandora platform, including XSLT and XPATH to interact with records. Routinely coordinated and led technical work in migrations between digital library hosting platforms. Led the statewide migration from Archon to ArchivesSpace during winter of 2018/19. Until summer 2019, FLVC operated the Florida Digital Archive, a digital preservation system used by all state universities in Florida except for Florida Polytechnic. I was briefly a backup contact for the Florida Digital Archive, and attended meetings and discussions related to assessing possible replacement software. Through this I have recent familiarity with digital preservation. Coordinated content and technical aspects of implementing the Florida Open Academic Library, Florida's centralized search of digital library materials from around the state. I inventoried what open access materials were made available through Florida public higher education and worked with computer programmers regarding how to harvest records through OAI-PMH and present records centrally in a federated search. 40 hrs/wk

In 2018, I served with the Sunshine State Digital Network (SSDN) Metadata Working Group. This group drafted and published the first SSDN Metadata Participation Guidelines for digital libraries wanting to contribute to the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) regional hub for Florida, the SSDN, and associated training materials in the presentation Guidelines Documentation and Examples Slide Deck. These materials may be viewed at .

In 2013, I served on the American Association of Law Library’s (AALL’s) Preservation Committee, housed within the Technical Services Special Interest Section (TSSIS). The charge to the committee that year was to consult with other sections and revise the AALL Preservation Policy, which had most recently been revised in 1998. The committee identified ISO standards related to digital preservation to add to the policy so that libraries can easily locate the policy, and put the ISO standards in requests for proposal or ask vendors whether products comply. The committee also kept print and microfilm standards in place, so that libraries can easily look up standards relevant to print acquisitions.
