Selected Works

Professional Biography

As a Research and Scholarly Communication Librarian my work centres on open access advocacy and education. In other words, I help to educate faculty and students on issues related to scholarly publishing, such as options for making work openly available, copyright and licensing, and author’s rights. I’m also the administrator of Western Libraries’ institutional repository, Scholarship@Western, so I coordinate the collection and dissemination of research in the repository.

Research Interests

My research interests include openwashing and scholarly publishing, web archives, academic libraries, and critical discourse analysis.
