As the Acquisitions & E-Resources Librarian, I'm responsible for the licensing, budgeting, purchasing and management of Galter's electronic collections, including databases, ebooks, electronic journals and other non-print materials. I work with my department to continuously identify, troubleshoot and resolve access problems related to electronic resources. I also help administer our integrated library services platform and related systems. My aim is to support Feinberg's mission of research and discovery by providing our users with seamless and reliable access to scholarly information resources.
