I am the head of Original & Special Collections Cataloging and a music cataloging expert with over 30 years of experience. My department creates and enhances high-quality bibliographic records, providing access to UMD’s collections.
I am active in the Music Library Association, the Program for Cooperative Cataloging, and ALA’s Association for Library Collections and Technical Services. Since 2005, my professional contributions have focused on the development of RDA: Research Description and Access. This has included serving on the RDA Steering Committee as the ALA Representative (2013-2017) and as chair-elect (2018), as well as giving numerous local, regional, and national presentations.
