We’re very excited to share that Jenny Hoops will begin as the department’s new Open Access Publishing Manager on January 7, 2019. In this role, Jenny will provide user support for the department’s journal program and institutional repository. Jenny will also oversee the creation of documentation to support users and contribute feature requests to our development team in order to improve systems and workflows. Jenny will take over for Richard Higgins, who previously served as Open Access Publishing Manager. He joined the Library Technologies Unit in October 2018 as a Programmer/Analyst and continues to work closely with the department.
Previously, Jenny served as Digital Publishing Assistant in the Scholarly Communication Department, collaborating with SC staff to lead and assess several projects. Jenny is currently completing her Library Science degree. Her research interests include open publishing trends and digital accessibility/literacy. Before coming to IU, she completed a bachelor’s degree in history and gender/sexuality studies at Grinnell College.
Please join me in welcoming Jenny to the Libraries!
