About Dom

Purpose

I am an adaptive, service-oriented leader and scholar-practitioner of Library and Information Science. I enjoy supporting student and faculty success through integrated approaches to interoperable systems, data, and professional development. I extended my metadata experience to acquisitions in my new role of Manager of the Monographic FastCat Unit at Yale University.

As an educator and manager, I empower and support information professionals to learn new skills to achieve their professional goals. My courses and workshops include practical examples and exercises.

I am available for trainings, workshops, and consultations. Contact me.
