We have resumed some on-campus services, including book pickup, virtual consultations, and fulfilling scanning/digitization requests. Many library materials are available online, but our buildings remain closed until further notice.

I'm the Head of UX & Digital Accessibility for Harvard Library. My primary role is to improve the usability of Harvard Library websites and search tools. In 2015 I worked to establish the User Research Center, a usability and digital accessibility testing lab at Harvard that provides UX testing resources to the entire University community. I also work on library initiatives and campus-wide efforts related to digital accessibility.
