A one-time reference librarian who gave it all up to code, I hack away at pushing ideas out to the Harvard Library community and beyond. These are some of the projects I've worked on.
An alternate library returns box for awesome items
If you checked out an item and you thought it was awesome, for whatever reason, you return it to the Awesome Box instead of the regular returns box.
Perma.cc helps scholars, journals and courts create permanent links to the online sources cited in their work.
Helping users locate items in the stacks
The Harvard Library has miles of shelves. Map It will tell you which one is home to the item you need.
A new way to browse the library
StackLife incorporates community usage data into searching and browsing and allows users to browse a virtual stack of items from across multiple libraries.
Redesigned research guides present content in a more usable and useful way.
Staff members chose a book to share with the library through an easy drag and drop interface.
