I am the Institutional Repository Librarian here at Cal State San Marcos. I work with many people across the campus and the CSU system to plan, develop, implement, grow, and maintain CSUSM ScholarWorks, our Institutional Repository. My goal is to create access to the scholarship, research, and creative works of the faculty, staff, and students on this campus.
