As the Institutional Repository Manager in the University Libraries, I support the KiltHub repository and other open scholarship tools and practices. I've been in the Libraries since 2000, and have worked with the institutional repository since 2009. My educational background is in public and cultural history, and I started my career at Carnegie Mellon as an archival specialist in the University Archives.
Open science is a natural fit to the work I do with KiltHub, the university-supported open repository for Carnegie Mellon researchers to share, preserve, and track their scholarship. With my OSDC colleagues, I regularly consult with researchers to help them comply with publisher policies and funder mandates for making their work open and accessible. We work with you to ensure that the research we're sharing in our repositories is well-organized and described so that it can be easily discovered, cited, and reused by others. Despite the name, open science isn't just about science--the Libraries' team supports all disciplines and types of research. If you're a CMU researcher interested in increasing the visibility and impact of your work with KiltHub, or if you'd like to discuss making your work more open in general, I'd love to hear from you!
