Associate Dean for collections and Scholarly communications
I manage the Collection and Processing Services, Interlibrary Loan, Special Collections, and Scholarly Communications operations at Pollak Library. Working collaboratively with subject librarians and Collection Development Team colleagues, I oversee the process of developing Pollak Library's collection and manage the selection, acquisition, and collection management of library materials in all formats. Prior to coming to CSUF, I was the Head of Acquisitions at the Getty Research Institute Research Library.
