“My scholarship is centered within the areas information representation and retrieval (IRR). My current research centers on the use of descriptive metadata within the online environment among library, archive and museum (LAM) professionals. The purpose of this research was to establish a baseline observation point by analyzing similarities and differences among LAM professionals when assigning descriptive metadata to represent the content of an information object at what, if any, relationships emerged between assigned terms. Findings from this project represent the foundation of my future research agenda.”
“With the advent of 9-11, I went back into the Air Force. There were a number of occasions I deployed. Having access to online classes allowed me to complete my degree programs without interruption.”
