Introduction

I have worked as a librarian at the UW Tacoma since 2003. My book Trying Home: The Rise and Fall of an Anarchist Colony on Puget Sound, published by Oregon State University Press, won the 2015 Washington State Book Award in the History/General Nonfiction Category. (For information about my work as an author, please visit my SelectedWorks page.)

I serve as the Associate Director of the UW Tacoma Library and oversee the Library's Digital Scholarship Program. Since 2012, I have been the lead for UW Tacoma Digital Commons and served as project manager and collaborator on multiple digital projects, such as the Tacoma Community History Project. My subject liaison areas include:
