Joe's role in the library
I am responsible for the overall management of the Harold A. Miller Library. I make purchase decisions for books, journals, and electronic resources in marine sciences. I help Hopkins residents find the information they need, procure documents not available on site or online, and provide instruction on use of physical and virtual library resources. I manage the Miller Library's web pages and Facebook presence.
In my role as Assistant to the Director of the Station, I help with fundraising, publicity, and tours. I also help manage content for the Station's web pages and help with computer support for Hopkins faculty, staff, and students.
