As Library Resources Director, I lead the six-person Resource Sharing team, coordinating services and support for: Commonwealth eBook Collection; Interlibrary Loan; MassCat; and state-wide database support. I am also a part of the two-person IT department supporting staff and office IT needs. A “typical” day can be fixing a circulation setting in the Koha ILS for a MassCat member, pointing a MLS member library to the authenticated URLs for access to Gale databases, working with ILL staff on a policy clarification, signing off invoices for the CEC program, and helping a co-worker suss out an issue with their Outlook email. Rarely a day goes by where I’m not involved in all five services my staff cover.
What’s Scott doing outside the office…
Spending time with my family watching an Office marathon and enjoying some snacks.
