I am responsible for creating discovery metadata for our Africana monographs and, more broadly, monographs in all Western European languages. I also provide CIP (cataloging-in-publication) data for titles published by Stanford University Press. Originally hired by the Hoover Institution in 1999, I joined Stanford Libraries in 2001. As of February, 2016, I am also Head of the Classification Unit within the Metadata Services Department. As of July, 2021, I am also a Team Lead (Middle East, South Asian, Africana & Hebrew resources) within the Metadata Creation Unit.
