I'm a reference librarian and liaison to Communication Studies, English, French, and Theatre. In addition to my MLIS, I have an MA in English Lit and Creative Writing. As a short fiction writer, I like digital platforms for literary journals - for both exclusively online journals and journals with a print run - because they have the potential for bringing creative work to a larger audience and, if offered for free, give writers the chance to browse and get a feel for genres and styles. That's not my only interest in the digital humanities/scholarly communication, but it's my main preoccupation.
