About me and my work

I am the ACRL Content Strategist. This means I hunt down interesting, useful, practical, and forward-looking content occurring in academic libraries and then find a vehicle for sharing that content with the ACRL members and the academic community at large. We publish books and offer podcasts on content of interest to academic librarians.

The other part of my work has to do with organizational consulting. I have worked in this field for close to 17 years. I facilitate the work of others through providing assistance in process and guidance in the development of organizational capacity.


Consulting Services

Among services I provide (both through ACRL and on my own) are:


  • Facilitation of strategic planning work
  • Facilitation of retreats and senior leadership development
  • Executive coaching
  • Consultation on change and change leadership
  • Creativity and innovation in libraries
