As the Digital Technologies Librarian at UNMC’s McGoogan Health Sciences Library, I am responsible for all the technical aspects of providing our students with access to new innovations in learning, creating, and accessing information. I am also growing the library’s makerspace and emerging technology offerings to support hands-on, project-based learning and informal, peer-to-peer knowledge sharing.
I would like to serve on the board to offer a higher ed perspective to discussions of educational technology in Nebraska. My experience on conference committees with Nebraska Library Association and Code4Lib can be an asset for the NETA board as well.
I would also like to form relationships with educators at all levels to explore collaboration opportunities and to keep up with educational technology trends that will affect our students as they transition to us from Nebraska schools.
